The objective of this magnificent volume is to transfer to the reader the best of the French Way of Santiago, for which we bring to your pages a compendium of the most outstanding texts on the history and current affairs of the rosary of cities and landscapes through which it passes. Also, the work is completed with a selection of spectacular photographs of the pilgrimage route to Santiago par excellence. Text and photographs will delight both those who have made the Camino and want to remember it, as well as those who have not been able to travel it and want to travel through reading.
The pilgrimage is a deeply rooted religious phenomenon in medieval Europe. The one that was done to Rome, to the tomb of the prince of the apostles, returned to the Eternal City the concept of capitality of the Universe. The one in Jerusalem, difficult because of its remoteness and the intermittent dominance of Muslims, facilitated contact with the Holy Land, the physical scene of the life of Christ. Rosemary and palm trees added the pilgrimage par excellence in the west, which was the one made to Santiago in Galicia.
