Santiago de Compostella

May 20 2014

The Camino de Santiago

The pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain owes its origin to the discovery, in what is now Galicia, of the tomb of the Apostle James the Great sometime early in the 9th century. It probably achieved its greatest popularity in the 12th century, when it came to rival Rome and Jerusalem as goals of Christian pilgrimage, and though it declined thereafter, it has never been entirely forgotten.

John Beirne, enjoying a coffee, before starting out on his journey to Compostella. This year he will celebrate his 71st birthday en route. He is hoping to raise awareness of the historical importance of this pilgrimage which used St James Bristol as a starting point.
