The Camino de Santiago

Since Medieval times, religious pilgrims have been walking the Camino de Santiago or Way of St. James. The various routes begin all over Europe and end at the St. James cathedral in the Galician city of Santiago de Compostela. Additionally, many pilgrims choose to continue from Santiago de Compostela another 50 miles to the coast at the end of their pilgrimage. Our building is located directly on this route.


An albergue is a lodging or inn along the route where pilgrims spend the night. Our albergue will offer a place to sleep along with an evening meal. During the day it will be used to serve pilgrims providing a place of rest and refreshment before they continue their journey. 

This strategic ministry will serve the physical needs of the pilgrims as well as provide many opportunities to share the Gospel with them. Many of the pilgrims are walking the Camino searching for something. As a result, they are open to spiritual conversations. This ministry will also provide volunteer groups from Spain and abroad the opportunity to serve and evangelize. Because people from all over the world walk the Camino, English is often the common language of the pilgrims. This allows volunteers to have deep spiritual conversations even if they don't speak Spanish.
