|On the Route to Santiago, you will travel in one of the main routes of Christendom and you will find out why UNESCO, the United Nations cultural branch, declared the Route to Santiago to be a Patrimony for all Humanity. You have heard of the Holy Land, you know about Rome, but have you ever done the Route to Santiago, known also as the first cultural European itinerary?

|There are two places where you can start your adventure: At the Valley of Roncesvalles at the Province of Navarra, or at the Port of Somport at the Province of Huesca. The path will take you through Northern Spain, one of the best kept secrets and jewels of Europe. If you were to do this travel when the 25th of July falls on a Sunday, you can add to your badge of honor that you did the Route on a Xacobean Year, a holy year. Find forgiveness for your sins and peace of mind away from the office.|
|Make the route on foot or on bicycle (Sorry, motor vehicles are forbidden!), and wear comfortable waterproof boots, because this journey is not for the faint hearted! Just kidding! Each days journey has been divided into 10 to 12 Kms parts, so that if you reaaaally want to enjoy it, you may. Thus the path to Santiago is for you to decide in speed, place to begin, and where do you want to stop. But you do not need to rough it completely either!! At the starting point of the journey, you ought to get a bordón, a walking staff to help you along the way, and a safe pass form the local church, and this pass will provide you with free lodging as it is stamped along the way to Santiago. In Galicia both of these mementos will provide you with unforgettable memories of your journey.|

|But is there anything worth eating there?
you may ask. Well!! How does fresh trout from some of the
purest rivers in Europe sound? Or maybe fresh fish or
even lobster from the Cantabrian Sea? Too much
fish you said, well we got great ram and pork
bathed and roasted in some of the finest wines of Europe
(Ribeiros, Albariños, and Rioja). Sorry, we did not mean
to forget you if you do not like meat entirely, we also
got some of the best cheeses and other delicacies to
tease your palate.
Come and see and travel through four important historical times of Spain: The Romanesque, Arabic, Gothic and the Renaissance. Sorry no modern times, we did not think you would enjoy warfare, however....well, you should just come and see, experience life to the fullest and you will thank us for keeping it as we have!!
