Walk a portion of the Camino de Santiago and learn about the remarkable journey taken by pilgrims from all over the world into Santiago de Compostela. In Lourdes, an opportunity to join the nightly Rosary and candlelight procession as well as time to experience the Healing Baths. Lastly, a magical ending in Barcelona with time to celebrate life, reflect and rejoice. reflecting in Gaudi’s magnificent Sagrada Familia.
