Turen er en del af verdens kulturarv

Vidste du at ruten faktisk er på UNESCO’s liste over verdens kulturarv – så der er noget at kigge på undervejs!

 

Santiago de Compostela was proclaimed the first European Cultural itinerary by the Council of Europe in 1987. This route from the French-Spanish border was – and still is – taken by pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela.
