World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.
