The Camino de Santiago pilgrimage routes are very popular in Spain, with hundreds of thousands of hikers completing one or at least part of the route each year. What these routes have in common is that they end in the city of Santiago de Compostela and, more precisely, in its cathedral to the tomb of the apostle Jacob. A beloved child has many names, so the name of the route translates into several names in different languages, e.g. in Finnish Jaakobin reitti, in English Way of St. James and in Spanish Rutas jacobeas. The Camino de Santiago is an interesting way to get to know Spanish culture, history and nature, and at the same time you meet other people from all over the world on the route.


Hiking can also be considered a reasonable physical performance, because normally the routes are at least. 100km long and the longest routes in Spain are over 1,000km. In general, day trips on foot are between 15-30 km, and by bike 50-70 km, although the routes are different in length and difficulty. You can for example stay in camping lodges or 4* hotels, do the route you want on a small budget or at the very end, enjoying the great casa rural type hotels and their services. Suitcases or rucksacks are transferred from one hotel to another with the help of a transport service, if you don’t necessarily want to carry them with you.


As a curiosity, we must mention the “pilgrimage passport”, where stamps are collected along the way and thus you can prove that you have completed the route and get a certificate for it at your destination in Santiago. The requirement to receive it is also at least 100km of hiking. The best time to complete the route is autumn or spring, when the weather conditions and temperatures are more ideal for completing the route. The heat in the summer and the cold weather in the winter give an additional challenge to completing the route.

The Camino de Santiago has been one of the most significant pilgrimage routes since the Middle Ages and has existed for over a thousand years. It was considered one of the three routes by which all sins could be forgiven – the other two leading to Rome and Jerusalem. From the beginning, there have been monasteries on the route that offered accommodation and catering services to those making the journey. Well, today they are more companies and entrepreneurs serving this tourism, but the idea is still the same to take care of hikers.


In 2021-22, Xacobeo, a holy year on the route, will be celebrated. Unusually, it is 2 years in a row because of covid. Normally, this jubilee year is only celebrated when Jacob’s Day is 25.7. falls on Sunday. This has been a permanent tradition since the 12th century. In the Holy Year, the Catholic Church grants absolution to those who make a pilgrimage to the apostle’s tomb in Santiago Cathedral. The “holy door” of the cathedral is open only then.


The route is not a single road, but can therefore be considered any of several pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela. However, a few roads are considered main routes. In the Middle Ages, many of these roads were traveled. However, the Reformation and the political instability of Europe in the 16th century caused the route to decline. Only a few pilgrims arrived in Santiago de Compostela in the early 1980s. Towards the end of the century, the number of visitors began to increase, as modern pilgrims became interested in the route.
