“CAMINO DE SANTIAGO”
There are three ways to get to Santiago; Camino del Norte, Camino Francés and Camino Portugués.
Its meant to be a religious ritual to clean your body and soul. Through the 10 kilometers path you connect with nature and start to feel your spirit. As you arrive to the place you pray to Apostol Santiago for you and your relatives to be safe; you grate It for all blessings that were given to you.
SYMBOL OF THE “CAMINO”
The symbol of the shell came from a long way backwards. Peligrims, for prove that they have completed the way, catched a shell of a scaloop and painted a red cross on it, then brought it home for it to keep their family safe.
