Camino de Santiago


CSB/SJU Pilgrims from the 2013 program

Camino de Santiago de Compostela: Walking on the Pilgrim's Way


...from Saint Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela-790 kilometers
between the Pyrenees and the Galician Coast,
one solitary step, one moment, is all there is
and we walk...

In this summer study abroad program, we will walk across Northern Spain along the medieval pilgrimage route known as the Camino de Santiago. Participants will learn about pilgrimage by becoming pilgrims--by walking with head, heart, and body.

22 May - 21 June 2014 (Tentative Dates)

The only prerequisites are an interest in new cultural experiences and the willingness to participate in a mobile learning community. The course is open to everyone regardless of major.
