The St. James pilgrimage route

The St. James pilgrimage route, or El Camino de Santiago, is the common name for several pilgrimage routes that led to the Sanctuary of St James in Compostela (Santiago means St James).

The apostolic life of James was broken by the sword and his remains were transferred to Spain to Santiago di Compostello. Due to the pilgrimage route that led to it, this city became an important cultural center for the whole of Europe.

Medieval compost pilgrims usually continued their journey from Santiago to Cape Jacob’s Path of Finisterre (End of the World) along the Atlantic coast, where they collected shells attached to a pilgrim’s cloak or hat as confirmation that they had reached the goal of their pilgrimage. This shell from the scallop family has become a hallmark of the Compostela pilgrim and St. Jacob. The path of Jacob is also marked everywhere by a yellow shell and a yellow (directional) arrow. Jakob’s path in Kranjska Gora runs from Zgornja Radovna to Mojstrana onwards towards Kranjska Gora and Rateče. During the pilgrimage to the old farmhouses, look for the frescoes of the Mother of God of Višarje.

Follow the yellow shells along the bike path to Kranjska Gora and Rateče, Tarvisio, Žabnica and from there all the way to Sv. Visharium in Italy. All information about the route, stages, height differences, accommodation and refreshments along the way can be found in the leaflet on the Slovenian fireplace.
