The Way of St. James (Spanish Camino de Santiago, Galician: Camiño de Santiago) is the name of a number of pilgrimage routes through Europe, all of which aim at the alleged tomb of the Apostle James in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia (Spain). First and foremost, it is understood to mean the Camino Francés, that high medieval main traffic axis in northern Spain, which leads from the Pyrenees to Jacob’s tomb and connects the royal cities of Jaca, Pamplona, Estella, Burgos and León. This route, as it is still done today, originated in the first half of the 11th century.
