The magnificent coasts of the Northern Way
The Camino del Norte, or Northern Way, is also referred to as the Ruta de la Costa. This Camino was used for centuries by Spanish pilgrims making their way along the magnificent coasts of the Basque region and Asturias. Turning inland they would finally arrive in Santiago de Compostela, the final resting place of the Apostle Saint James.
The Camino del Norte is a unique journey, favoured by many of today’s pilgrims. This Camino route crosses some of the most spectacular scenery on Spain’s northern coast. It passes through superb cities such as San Sebastian, Bilbao, Santander and Oviedo. Ultimately, this Camino joins the Camino Primitivo Route in Oviedo, which continues on to Santiago de Compostela.
