It’s no surprise that the Camino de Santiago has been the subject of literature through the ages. From 12th-century Codex Calixtinus such as that by Shirley MacLaine “Journey of the Spirit” and Paulo Coelho’s “The Pilgrimage”. Fiction has also played its role in creating an allure for this area of northern Spain. The iconic novel “The Sun Also Rises” by Ernest Hemingway is partly set in Pamplona during San Fermin and captures the frenzy of the fiesta but also captures the serenity of the Spanish countryside.
At Follow the Camino, we believe that Art, Literature and the Camino values and spirit go wonderfully well together. Therefore, we’re now producing a range of Camino Literary tours.
If you have any suggestions or know of a unique literary trip we should organise on the Camino, feel free to let us know and we will organise it for you!
