The Way of Saint James - El Camino de Santiago - Buen Camino Tours



El Camino de Santiago 
The Way of St. James dates back to the 9th century. Tradition holds that after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, James the Apostle was sent to what was considered the end of the world – Finisterre to preach “the Good News.” He eventually went back to Jerusalem, was martyred, and his remains were brought back to northern Spain. His grave site was lost for hundreds of years until stars (stellae) from heaven shined on a field (campus) to reveal to local shepards its location. Since then, pilgrims walk these routes as a path for spiritual growth. And many miracles are attributed to the site. Today, pilgrims who walk at least 100 kilometers (about 63 miles) along one of these paths are awarded a credential called the Compostela. Buen Camino Tours©, a division of Bravo Tours, designs programs that will allow pilgrims to earn this credential while walking at their own pace, with a local escort, a support vehicle, and the peace of mind that their meals and accommodations will be at premium establishments. The scallop shell is the symbol          for all those who wish to visit this marvelous region. Here is your opportunity to experience The Way of Saint James - ¡Buen Camino! (Have a great trip!)
