The Camino de Santiago is truly an amazing cultural experience. The ‘Way of St. James’ is a pilgrimage route that transverses the northern part of Spain, starting at two points at the border with France and ending in the city of Santiago de Compostela in the province of Galicia.  The trail offers a plethora of historical, religious, and cultural contexts to teach students about Spain and also its relation to Europe.  From its origins during the times of the reconquista to its current status as UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Camino provides a unique opportunity for students who are interested in seeing Spain while following in the footsteps of hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who came before them.
