History of the Camino de Santiago
Saint James and early pilgrimages
The history of the Camino de Santiago is interwoven with the history of Spain and Europe. It is centred around the historic figure of James, son of Zebedee, who was one of Jesus’ twelve apostles and brother of the apostle Saint John. He is also called James "the Greater" or St. James. First sources claim in the 7th century that James was active as a missionary on the Iberian Peninsula . When James later returned to Jerusalem, he was allegedly killed by King Solomon and died a martyr.
There are different accounts of how the skeleton of St. James arrived in Spain. Some say his followers brought it into Spain, as it was custom for a missionary’s remainsto be buried at the place of his ministry. Other sources claim that his skeleton arrived to the city of Padrón on an unmanned ship made of stone. Some say the ship was guided by an angel.
