Accessible Pilgrimage Route: The Way of Saint James in Catalonia
18/03/2010 | 0 comments
From Le Perthus and Sant Pere de Rodes to Girona, Montserrat and Lleida, the Way of Saint James runs right across Catalonia, taking different routes towards Saragossa and the old Camino Francés (French Way), towards Jaca, Logroño and beyond.
This route is accessible for wheelchair users, thanks to local initiatives which are now promoted by Catalunya Tourism.
Whether on foot, by bicycle, wheelchair or on horseback, the pilgrimage to the tomb of the Apostle Saint James in Galicia is not only a spiritual journey of self-discovery but also offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the wealth of natural, landscape and cultural heritage that lies along this “path of paths” as it takes us through Catalonia.

From June 2010 we will have our website: www.camidesantjaumeperatothom.com in English, and a new Accessible Guide of Catalonia, to replace the guide we have now:
