An Ancient Pilgrimage

Hiking towards the northwestern corner of Spain is a pilgrimage that goes back to the early 900s. At that time the relics of Saint James the Greater were discovered by a hermit. After verification from the bishop, a chapel was built (replaced later by a Cathedral), miracles began to occur and Christians from all over Europe felt compelled to trek to the tomb of this apostle.
