For most of the pilgrims, their path did not end in Santiago, but they wanted to continue a little more and know the mythical “Finis Terrae” at the end of the world. Today many pilgrims also decide to go to the end of the medieval world and enjoy a amazing sunset.
Our forefathers used to say “He who visits Santiago but not Oviedo, visits the servant but not the master”. This route follows the path of the first known itinerary taken by Alfonso II in the 9th century to visit the newly discovered tomb of the Apostle Saint James.
Its name comes from the country that it passed through in the Middle Ages and that has left its mark in places as important as Paris and its Tour de Saint Jacques. Today it is the most popular route, not in vain more than 60% of pilgrims who walk to Santiago choose her. Despite being the busiest it does not lose an iota of its charm and that is shown by the pilgrims who repeat.
