The Camino de Santiago has many varied highlights; both scenic, cultural and historic along it’s almost 800km length. Each region offers it’s own attractions and the landscapes and towns vary considerably from one place to another. Travel is always a subjective experience and one Pilgrim’s highlight may be the warm welcome & regional cuisine they received from a local host or perhaps the Camaderie amongst fellow Pilgrim’s –  whilst another’s highlight will be the glorious Gothic Interior of Leon Cathedral or a stay at one of the Parador hotels. Thankfully, we all enjoy and appreciate different aspects of life but here is a list of some of the most popular highlights. Click on the name to see a picture of the relevant highlight.
