The spirituality of pilgrimage


A site, all in French, covering not only the practicalities, but also the spiritual side of the pilgrimage ("Les Chemins de St Jacques: conseils pratiques et éclairages spirituels"), and including a list of places on the le Puy route offering Christian hospitality.

Devotional materials for the Pilgrim

This site offers a) a sequence of Bible readings ("A Closer Walk") covering the whole of the year in which you make your pilgrimage, and b) a shorter version ("Forty Days") suitable for the pilgrimage itself. A Spanish version is also available. The readings are in .pdf format.

Christian pilgrimage in general

A site giving information on many Christian pilgrimages, including Santiago, maintained by Danny Thomas of Epsom.  Includes a particularly interesting set of pages on the "ethos of pilgrimage".

Small Pilgrim Places

Not strictly Santiago, but well worth a visit if you can't get to Spain this year: a growing network of out-of-the-way places in the UK, which offer space and quiet for the pilgrim.
