Compostela, the Way of St. James

Prepare to retrace the steps of the Compostela pilgrims. Final destination: Santiago de Compostela! On El Camino francés, the French Way, you will become a jacquet, the name given to modern pilgrims. As you complete your bicycle pilgrimage, each “stopover” will take on a new significance, as another stamp is entered in your pilgrim’s passport. Soon, you will make contact with St. James... The meeting is imminent. A moment of silence: the ultimate goal is finally clear. And who knows? You might even find a scallop shell, one of the symbols of St. James of Compostela.
