The Roads to Santiago: The Medieval Pilgrim Routes Through France and Spain to Santiago de Compostela Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The thousand-year-old pilgrimage routes to the shrine of St James at Santiago de Compostela have seen an astonishing rise in the number of pilgrims since the turn of the millennium. Religious or secular, walking, riding or cycling, the Camino continues to work its magic on those who set out on this ancient path.

In The Roads to Santiago acclaimed landscape photographer Derry Brabbs has captured the true spirit of this remarkable journey. From the endless vistas of central France, the pilgrim routes converge in the mountain passes of the Pyrenees, then forge a path across the desolate beauty of the Spanish meseta.

Covering all four major routes through France, and the Camino Francés across Spain, this is the essential companion for anyone who has made or intends to make this inspirational journey.
