    Lonely Planet Traveller Magazine has written an article about the "Great Escapes in Northern Spain". Follow the Camino is mentioned in Section 5: "Camino de Santiago". Here is an excerpt from their story: 

    "Camino de Santiago, Follow in the footsteps of countless pilgrims along the sacred Way of St James through the villages and countryside of GaliciaIN THE PRAZA DO OBRADOIRO, Santiago de Compostela's central square, people sink to their knees, their faces a picture of euphoria, spilling tears onto sun-warmed cobblestones. This eccentric behaviour is an everyday occurrence at the finish line of one of the world's great pilgrimages, the Camino de Santiago. For more than a millennium, Christians have come to pay tribute at what they believe to be the burial site of Saint James, one of Christ's disciples.Today, the Camino continues to draw modern pilgrims on foot along routes starting in Spain, France and even Poland and Hungary - journeys of up to 2,000 miles. The final destination is the grand edifice looming over the square: the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, a soaring Romanesque tribute to St James. "
