The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 200,000 people travel to the city each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy, modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their lives in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Gift this lovely scallop shell necklace to inspire a friend or loved-one and help them to be fortunate in their life and safe on their journeys. A meaningful Camino gift. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
