Category: Postcards from the Camino

“Postcards from the Camino,” is a series of occasional sketches on the theme of pilgrimage to the shrine of the Apostle Saint James (Santiago in Spanish) in Compostela. Pope Francis declared a double Holy Year 2021-2022 for pilgrims to the shrine. The writer, Gareth Thomas, is British but lives in Spain and sees European culture as reflecting centuries of shared Catholic tradition.
