Every year, thousands of people trek hundreds of miles from France to Spain as part of the Camino de Santiago.  This pilgrimage to the legendary burial site of St. James is taken by Christians to connect more deeply with their faith. Nonreligious travelers have been known to take the journey for the historic scenery, as a challenging hike, or to meet people from all over the world.
