Check Out Amazing Walking Tours In Spain

I’ve spent some time in beautiful Barcelona (which has its fair share of amazing walking tours), and soaked up way too many rays beach-side in sunny Salou, but my next visit to Spain will be to check out one of the most famous walking routes in the world.

The Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St. James, is a pilgrimage taken by millions since the middle ages to the site of the shrine of the apostle St. James – found in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in north-western Spain. Many take up this route for spiritual reasons - others are simply interested in the history and heritage, the experience and challenge of weeks of walking in a foreign land. There are endless choices of starting points and lengths of routes both short and long - you can literally start this walk from four different cities in France (Paris, Vézelay, Arles and Le Puy. Cluny) or even from Portugal (Lisbon or Porto) – if you’ve got the time, the inclination and some really reliable legs.

I’m also keen to explore the urban landscapes of Madrid, VelenciaPalma, Malaga and Seville on foot.  Then of course there is the Central Highlands - an area that is featured in this hauntingly beautiful film that takes a loving look at Castilla-La-Mancha and Castilla-y-Léon. Just how much I’ll be able to squeeze in depends entirely on how many days away from the office I can manage to wrangle out of the boss. Wish me luck, or better yet, come join me.
