Life takes a slower pace and a pilgrim takes on a medieval mentality to the world, to travel, to movement, to daily goals. A pilgrimage strips away the dust of busy lives and takes you on an internal journey as you walk an ancient path. It´s what we all need, especially at the moment. A return to medieval travel is just what the doctor ordered.
The Camino de Santiago is one of the most famous pilgrimage routes in Europe. The destination is Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, in the north west of Spain. There are many routes from the north, south, east and west. The particular route we take is called the Camino Mozárabe and it begins in Málaga, stretching throught the heartlands of Andalucía to Córdoba and beyond, before it meets with another route, La Vía de la Plata in the city of Mérida in Extremadura.
