A Spain private Camino de Santiago tour is one of Europe’s top active historic trips. As a pilgrimage, it was on par with other great spiritual journeys from Europe to Jerusalem or Rome. For many, it is difficult to overlook the historic and spiritual importance of the Camino.
Of course, more monasteries, churches and villages sprung to nurture body and soul. UNESCO lists 1,800 buildings along the Camino as “great historic interest.”
