The magnificent coasts of the Northern Way
The Camino del Norte, or the Northern Way, is also referred to as the Ruta de la Costa. This Camino was used for centuries by Spanish pilgrims. They made their way along the magnificent coasts of the Basque region and Asturias. From there they turned inland towards Santiago de Compostela, the final resting place of the Apostle Saint James.
The Camino del Norte is a unique journey, so it is no wonder that so many consider this their favourite Camino route. This Camino route maps out across 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.
