That should be the Camino de Santiago (Saint James' Way).
It has been walked since the early Middle Ages (around the 9thcentury).
The most popular is the French Way, beginning in places like Limoges
or Toulouse and crossing over the Pyrenees towards Santiago de
Compostela in Galicia.
Most of the people begin in Roncesvalles, in the Navarra side of the
Pyrenees and walk the Way (or ride a horse or a bycicle) thru
Pamplona, LogroŇo, Burgos, Leon, and into Galicia. Although you
could begin as far as Russia, Norway or Ireland (the english way cross the
sea from Plymouth, there is a group of english Friends of the Way
who does it on every jubilee year).
If you want to be certified as a pilgrim once you arrive in
Santiago, you need to walk 100 kms on foot or 200 kms on horse or by
bike. Afterwards, with that certificate, you get a 50% discount on
IBERIA local flights, so you can come back home on style.
folder on the Travelzine Links (Countries/Regions -> Spain) and have
a look at the webcam in Santiago?
