overview

The Camino de Santiago, or in English, the Way of St. James, is the most famous pilgrim path in the world. It is believed that St. James preached the Gospel in present day Galicia and on return to Jerusalem he was arrested and died a martyr’s death. The remains of St. James were taken back to Spain by his followers and are said to be buried in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.

The Camino de Santiago is not one single route but a network of ancient routes stretching across Europe, all leading to Santiago de Compostela. Today, you can walk the Camino for spiritual reasons, as a physical challenge, or both of course, to experience its unique old-world culture and beauty. Whatever your reason for making this journey, it can be a transformational one where the benefits will remain with you long after you have returned home.

This trip is with Remarkable Transformer, Maria Baltazzi, your transformational travel experience guide, and it focuses on the Portuguese Spiritual Way, also known as the Maritime Way, from Baiona on the western coast of Galicia to Santiago de Compostela. This unique Camino de Santiago includes a twelve nautical mile cruise showing the best of Galicia’s Rías Baixas, four estuarine inlets. You will also enjoy some of the country’s best gastronomy. However, one of the greatest highlights will be walking along idyllic beaches enjoying breathtaking views, making new memories and friendships to cherish for a lifetime.

**2022 is another Holy Year on the Camino**
For those who are walking with spirituality or religion in mind, 2022 will be memorable year for the Camino de Santiago, because it is a Holy Year. Last year was the official Holy Year, however, due of COVID, the Pope extended this observance
through to this year. A Holy Year on the Camino is a year when the feast of St James (July 25th) falls on a Sunday. According to Jacobean tradition, pilgrims who walk to Santiago de Compostela during a Holy Year and pass through the Holy Door of the Santiago Cathedral are forgiven all their sins. This is called a plenary indulgence and was started by Pope Calixto II. There is so much fascinating history and ceremony around Holy Years which you can learn and experience on this particularly special trip.

This Camino trip is perfect for solo travellers and small groups and the walk itself is manageable for all ages and most fitness levels.
