The Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago in Spanish) is a world-renowned pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Every year, thousands of hikers from all over the world would come to Spain for this hike. It is also considered to be one of the most open areas in Europe to share the gospel, as most pilgrims are more open to listen, discuss and reflect while on the Camino.You will hike the Way of St. James with your teammates. You will find yourself surrounded by pilgrims coming from all parts of Spain and the rest of the world, and there will be lots of opportunities for you to make friends from all walks of life and share the gospel with them, both while you are walking and in the pilgrim hostels.
