Many are those who say that "they" do not do any route to the Camino de Santiago because it is "something" religious, that does not go with them, that they are not believers, that they do not see any sense in making a route to Santiago if they do not have faith.
The Camino is not just an exclusively "religious" pilgrimage whose primary objective is to give "thanks" or ask for "something" in front of the tomb of the Apostle Santiago.
The "Way" can be personal, social or entertainment in search of what each one wants:
Find or know yourself or the friends or family with whom you take the route better.
Meet people from different cultures or countries.
Enrich yourself personally.
Relax in natural places of great beauty.
Enjoy an exquisite gastronomy on the French Way for example: octopus, cooked maragato ...
When one I arrived in Santiago de Compostela You can express your "Way" as you see fit, what is undeniable is that in front of the Cathedral of Santiago we all dwarf and admire its beauty (whether cultural and / or spiritual).
Do not close in band and believe that you are betraying your values for doing the "Camino", it is still a hiking hike in which you can share a beautiful experience alone or accompanied ...
Build your trip to Santiago based on your feelings and don't be captivated by the rush.
Every moment you spend more in Santiago will have enriched the rest of your life.
It's up to you!!!
We help you organize your trips to the Camino de Santiago organized so you can fully enjoy this unique experience!!
The only difference, between a pilgrim or a hiker, will be that if you do the Camino de Santiago from Sarria organized, Once you arrive at the Pilgrim Assistance Office, if you claim that the walk was for religious reasons (pilgrim), they will give you "La Compostela". In the case of alleging other motivations: cultural, tourism, gastronomic, etc., they will give you another Certificate similar to The Compostela but without religious connotations in its wording. In any case, the objective of completing the Camino de Santiago is not reflected on a piece of paper, but within one of oneself, and what the trip has contributed to each of us. The Camino de Santiago is a life experience that each one carries out for different reasons. Do you dare to know yours?
