Overview

Discover the history of the Camino along with the myths, legends and miraculous stories that have, over time, become attached to this most popular of pilgrimages.

Join Robert Mullen as he walks the Camino Francés - the pilgrim's path from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port at the foot of the Pyrenées in France all the way to the shrine of Saint James at Santiago de Compostela and then on to Finisterre ("the end of the earth") at the western most point of Spain.

No two pilgrims are likely to experience or to understand the Camino in exactly the same way; but all of those who walk it will experience the same miracle - this pilgrimage will play a defining role in their lives!

Meet the new friends Robert made at various stages on the way - they are remarkably different from each other: home country, background, motivation to walk the Camino. What is common to them all is that they have left behind what is familiar and habitual in order to wake each day to a new vista, to a new stretch of road, to the scents and the flavours of a land other than their own. Buen Camino!

What People are saying about this

John Brierley

Mullen brings a lovely blend of humour that always feels relevant and authentic . . . the Call of the Camino . . . might be the most important wake-up call of your life. (John Brierley, author, The Camino Guides)

Alison Raju

Well-written (nothing is redundant), well-researched, and extremely readable, Robert Mullen has a rare gift for . . . conveying essential information about foreign terms and concepts without being either pedantic or condescending. (Alison Raju, author, The Way of St. James: Pyrenees-Santiago-Finistere)
