Since the Middle Ages Christians have walked this ancient pilgrimage across northern Spain. Also called “The Way of Saint James” this long walk traverses incredibly beautiful scenery over old Roman roads (from 1st century BC) and through the Pyrenees mountains and tiny villages dotted with buildings, churches, and bridges that date back as far as the 11th century. Come and hear why 278,000 people completed at least part of this pilgrimage in the years pre-COVID. David and Anne Andert walked the Camino Frances in fall 2016 and the Camino del Norte in fall 2018. The Frances was a 40-day journey, and we know that whenever the number “40” appears in the bible, something significant is about to happen. If you’ve watched the movie, “The Way” with Martin Sheen, you’ve seen the path they walked in 2016.
Warning: the Camino gets under your skin. You may find yourself making plans, too. (Anderts also started a chapter of “American Pilgrims on the Camino” here in Wisconsin.)
