Course Description

The Camino de Santiago is a network of medieval Christian pilgrimage routes that run throughout Europe to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The most popular route (the Camino Frances) is about 500 miles and takes about five weeks to walk, starting in St. Jean Pied de Port, France, traveling over the Pyrenees mountains, crossing the Spanish meseta from Pamplona and Burgos to Leon, and walking through the mountains of Galicia. After centuries of declining use, the Camino's popularity has surged over the past 30 years. In 2019 (pre-COVID-19), approximately 350,000 individuals from more than 175 countries (including 20,000 from the US) walked to Santiago on the Camino de Santiago (and many more walked part of the Camino). This five-week course is for those who are thinking about walking the Camino de Santiago and those who just want to learn more about the Camino's history, culture, and spirit; the experience of walking the Camino; and what it means to walk as a pilgrim. • Lecture + Q&A.
