What is the Camino de Santiago?

The Camino de Santiago, the Way of St. James, is an ancient pilgrimage path dating back more than a thousand years with its destination as the shrine of the apostle St. James. This route stretches across the north of Spain and has regained popularity in recent years for many reasons. More than 300,000 pilgrims complete it each year and the U.S. stands proudly as its fourth most numerous pilgrimage nation. Come walk your “Camino” with us while enjoying the beautiful scenery and getting the most out of the visits along the way with the help of our learned staff. Focus on your walk, your thoughts, and leave the rest to Arcos Learning Abroad!
