All of the last 100km walks to Santiago de Compostela are predominantly through the undulating landscape of Galicia. Galicia is renowned for its hilly landscape and lush vegetation which makes it a wonderful place to walk. This area is also rich in history that is still visible today. Celtic tribes initially inhabited this land and it is from them that the area's name comes. The area was then occupied by the Romans in the 3rd Century BC until the Middle Ages when the Moorish Invaders tried to conquer these lands. Ultimately the Moor's never really had control and the land soon fell back into the control of the Christian Kingdom of Asturias. It was at this time that the tomb of St James was discovered and since then this area has been a pilgrimage destination.
