Walking El Camino de Santiago: May 2020

There are still a few seats left to walk El Camino this May 2020.

Students, faculty and administrators are invited to join us for this one week walk (of approximately 70 miles) following one of the oldest medieval pilgrimage routes to St. James Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, located in the Northeast part of Spain.

Santiago de Compostela is a legendary burial place of St. James, venerated by Christians around the world. Archetypical travels of St. James and its supposed entombment in the Iberian Peninsula gave birth to the eschatological myth and created one of the most important pilgrimages in the Medieval world known as El Camino de Santiago.

Faculty and students walked El Camino first in 2016 and then in 2018. This year’s dates are May 24-30. Seats are limited.

For more information, contact Margaret Stefanski, PhD, at or by calling Ext. 3736.
