The primary attraction is the history associated with the city, which dates back to the 4th Century and is the ending point of the “el Camino de Santiago” pilgrimage. Legend has it that the remains of St. James were taken by boat from Jerusalem to Northern Spain and were buried on the land that is now the city of Santiago de Compostela. Each year close to 100,000 Christian pilgrims journey to the city from all over Europe, and some from other parts of the world, with many walking the route.
