DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE?!?!?
This is a question I frequently ask first-time pilgrims on the Camino Francés, as we walk together on this ancient pilgrimage path.
Beebe Bahrami, author of the Moon Camino de Santiago guidebook knows the answer, and she shares the history, culture, and context of the Camino Francés in her beautiful guide to sacred sites, historic villages, and local food and wine.
In this episode:
What is the real history of the Cruz de Ferro, or Iron Cross?
What’s this about a stone boat?
What does it mean when someone wishes a pilgrim “buen Camino”?
