The Camino de Santiago de Compostela has become much more than just a pilgrimage route; today, it is a continuous World Cultural Event that brings people and cultures together from all over the globe. Come and learn the "who, what, where and when" of the Camino and how you can share in this world-changing cultural event. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela (or "The Way of Saint James in a Field of Stars" in English) is a pilgrimage way that is over a thousand years old and exists to this day. In 2017, more than 300,000 people walked some part of the 500-mile long "Camino Frances" and arrived in Santiago de Compostela. The Camino begins in the Pyrenees in St. Jean Pied de Port, France and ends in Santiago de Compostela in the northwestern province of Galicia in Spain. American Pilgrims on the Camino (APOC) has local chapters and we'll be hearing from Los Angeles County representatives about this epic journey of a lifetime. After a presentation by American Pilgrims on the Camino, we will break out the group into smaller groups for an intimate opportunity to ask your questions about the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Buen Camino!
