The pilgrim path

Astorga on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (© Joan Grífols)

Pilgrims have been walking along the “Camino de Santiago”, the road to Santiago, for over a thousand years. Louise Williams joins the path on the border between France and Spain and walks, with some lapses for train and bus rides, the 800 kilometres to the Spanish city of Santiago. She meets with priests, pilgrims and even a troubadour along the way.
