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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Brabbs traces the four main routes within France leading to Santiago de Compostella, the third most important pilgrimage destination for medieval travelers. His photographs of the journeys are breathtaking, showing the tiny towns and grand cathedrals where the pilgrims took, and still take, shelter. In many towns of France and Spain the scallop symbol of St. James can still be found at wayside inns and hostels. Brabbs has written an informative and lively text to accompany his photos. This not only gives the background of the pilgrimage sites and the purpose behind the journey, but also describes the personal reactions of one who followed the same path as thousands over the centuries. Today there are more than religious reasons for making a pilgrimage to Compostella, but, as Brabbs shows so beautifully, anyone who follows the old roads there cannot avoid being affected by the journey.
