BEYOND CAMINO TREK
The French Way is the most popular of the routes of the Way of St. James, the ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain, our route is the last 115km from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela.
2021 IS A HOLY YEAR
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A HOLY YEAR ?
As well as the Holy Door to the Cathedral being opened, pilgrims who visit the Apostle’s tomb at the Cathedral of Santiago during the Holy Year will obtain their “Jubilee” which means they obtain plenary indulgence, the complete forgiveness of all your sins. To obtain this they must also say a prayer and receive the Sacraments of Penance and Communion.
THE JOURNEY OF THE CAMINO TREK
We think the trip is about more than just Santiago de Compostela so we will take our time during the day and enjoy all that is around us.
There may be time for sightseeing around our destinations in the late afternoon/evenings, with so many old buildings and beautiful churches to look at, it will just enhance the experience of the trip, travel to these sites will be included but entrances fee's may be payable.
Or you can choose to sit in the sun and enjoy the local wine.
