    The Camino de Santiago has been awarded the Protecturi Award for 2015 for its contribution to universal culture and heritage. This is the second major acknowledgement that the Camino de Santiago has been awarded in 2015. This is after its inclusion as a UNESCO heritage site. It has been the first European Cultural Route to be declared a World Heritage Site. As well as being spiritually significant, the Camino de Santiago is an exceptional example of natural beauty and historical heritage throughout the route. UNESCO has indicated several sites of interest along the Way including:  

    • Oviedo: The Monuments of Oviedo and the Kingdom of the Asturias. This is located on at the beginning of the Original Way.
    • Burgos: Burgos Cathedral. This Gothic cathedral is located on the French Way
    • Santiago de Compostela: Santiago de Compostela (Old Town).
    • Seville: Cathedral, Alcázar and Archivo de Indias in Seville.
    • Ponferrada: Las Médulas.
    • Lugo: Roman Walls of Lugo
