The way of St. James is the name of a historic network of pilgrimage routes leading to the tomb of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The many paths start in many different places and end on the western edge of costal Europe. Many pilgrims continue to the costal town of Finisterre at the end of the journey.
Although the Camino begins at each pilgrim’s own door, over the centuries, a number of main routes have been pinpointed. There are currently 281 Caminos listed, encompassing more than 51,500 miles of routes through 29 different countries. The Camino’s furthest point in Europe is in the city of Iași in Romania, where a milestone was placed in 2019 to mark 2,796 miles (4,500 km).
