The Way of Saint James is a powerful trigger of life experiences; thus, when it seems that everything has been said about it, we find that its secrets are in fact still secure, its lessons spread out and each picture is unique and unrepeatable. The Main Street of Europe, as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe called the Camino, teaches us a new lesson with each step. Saint James' Way is both a superb cultural route and a once in a lifetime emotional experience.
This is exactly what this book intends to encapsulate within its pages, with the assistance of words and images. Precise and evocative words that do not avoid erudite details but, above all, intend to move the reader. And an extensive and up-to-date photo report that is testimonial to the Camino and at the same time provides examples of visual beauty.
The general text is supported by auxiliary paragraphs about unmissable detours, artistic landmarks, historical anecdotes, geographical and artistic peculiarities, and myths and legends of the Camino. More than four hundred and fifty photos convey the monumental and geographical landscape, folkloric traditions, and the most emblematic landmarks.
Made with the highest standard of technical quality and the greatest respect for the environment.
