Santiago de Compostela, the end of the most famous pilgrimage on the European continent, will be flooded with thousands of young Europeans until Sunday as the 🇪🇺 European Youth Pilgrimage (EYP) returns to celebrate the ✝️ Jacobean Holy Year in the internationally known Spanish town.
🎒 FRH will also walk the Camino following in the footsteps of Raúl, a 16-year-old Spanish boy who has just started the pilgrimage with his father Armando. Over the course of a week, father and son will cover more than 100 km of the Portuguese Way, collecting stories, creating memories and contributing to the valorisation of the religious heritage in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

📖DAY 1, Tui-Porriño (1st stage) 📖
“Today was the first day on the road. We were both very keen to start, especially me, because this is the first time I am walking the Camino de Santiago.
We got up at eight o’clock in the morning to take advantage of the cool morning weather and start more comfortably. The walk was calm and very scenic as we passed through different areas such as rivers, forests, and hidden villages. We stopped at a beautiful “furancho”, as they call the houses in the north of Spain that provide drinks and snacks to pilgrims. It was a bit off the route but it was perfect to hydrate and catch our breaths.
During the day we were also able to attend the pilgrim’s mass and sign our credentials at Christ Church in Porriño. Even so, the best thing of all is to arrive at the “albergue”, the pilgrim’s hostels, and get a good rest for the next stage.”
