The world-famous pilgrimage route ends in the north east of Spain
For those considering trekking holidays in Spain, walking the world-famous Camino de Santiago in Spain is an excellent choice.
Winding up at the tomb of St James in Santiago de Compostela, the route is one of Europe's most revered pilgrimages, and has been walked since the ninth century. It was also the first route to be designated a European Cultural Itinerary.
Known as The Way of St James in English, it actually comprises a number of different routes, the most famous of which called the El Camino Frances and starts at the Roncesvalles Pass in the Pyrenees.
At the end of the long journey, Santiago, which boasts UNESCO World Heritage status, boasts some of the best conserved monuments in Europe and a majestic cathedral that really must be seen to be truly appreciated.
Those enjoying trekking holidays along the Camino De Santiago will be able to visit two fantastic medieval cities in Burgos and Leon.
They will then have a chance to head to Las Medulas, whose surrounding hills are full of caves and was a major source of gold during the time of the Roman Empire.
