In the year 813 in Galicia a hermit named Paio (Pelayo) discovered the tomb of Saint James (Santiago) in the city of Compostela. According to the legend Santiago the Apostle came to Spain to evangelise the northern part of the Iberian peninsula. Since its discovery the Apostle’s tomb has become a sacred site attracting pilgrims and non-pilgrims from all over the world. The Camino de Santiago or Road to Santiago has been declared by UNESCO of World Heritage importance, and in addition to its spiritual significance, it holds other historic values, such as having been the backbone of European cultural unity.
