In the 9thC, Alfonso II, King of Asturias, ordered the construction of a church where the body of Saint James the Apostle was said to have been buried. From the 15thC onwards, this church became a Christian pilgrimage shrine, giving rise to the Camino de Santiago, known in English as Saint James' Way. On this journey, you'll follow theclassic route—traveling by car from eastern Spain to the west—to witness landscapes of rolling hills and craggy peaks, impressive cathedrals and well-preserved ruins from ancient civilizations.See more
