The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is a 1 200-year-old pilgrimage mainly through Spain, culminating at the burial place of the remains of James the Apostle, Sant Iago. It is also a World Heritage site, because the earliest human remains in Europe were discovered directly on the camino (way or walk).
