Correos, the Spanish postal service, pays homage to the Camino del Norte (The Northern Way) with a booklet made up of eight stamps with images of significant places on el Camino and the outline of the Cantabrian Coast.
Follow the signs, take only the bare essentials, keep any eye on your belongings, avoid carrying large amounts of cash... Here's a few tips for a safe Camino de Santiago (St. James's Way).
Correos participates from 7 to 11 March at the ITB in Belin, the most important tourism fair in the world. We took advantage of our stay there to analyse the importance of the Camino de Santiago in Germany, the second foreign country with the most pilgrims each year, and from which 50 Jacobean Routes depart.
Santiago de Compostela, the goal of all Jacobean roads and routes is the image of the new stamp that Correos now has in circulation. We're taking advantage of this incorporation to the Jacobean stamp family to tell you about the long and storied relationship between the Camino de Santiago and philately.
Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela by sea. This is 'Sail the Way' Jacobean Route, in which the pilgrim makes his or her pilgrimage not on foot, bicycle or horseback but on the seas.
¡Buen Camino! This is our wish at Correos! – that pilgrims can fully enjoy their Camino and discover new places, histories, people and experiences through our postcards.
