My Way of St. James

“ Perseverance is not a long race;

it is many short races one after another. ”

— Walter Elliott

What is the Way of St. James?

The way of St. James is a very old pilgrimage route located in northwestern Spain. The final destination of this route is the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where, according to tradition, the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from around the world converge to this part of the world to walk this route.

What is My Way of St. James?

My way of St. James is a unique application that lets you do this pilgrimage YOUR way, without the need to go to any special place but the place you are right now!

Essentially, this application works like a pedometer that transforms your steps in Pilgrim steps and transposes them on the map of My way of St. James. So you will, in a virtual way, go through the same cities and villages in which the last hundreds kilometers of the real pilgrimage go through. You will start your walk in the city of Sarria and, step by step, gradually make your way to your final destination, the Santiago Cathedral. But actually, perhaps the only place you will ever go to will be the streets surrounding your house!

In a virtual way, My way of St. James contains all the essential things that are in a real pilgrim's bag:

So, at any moment that you want to take time for yourself, whether it is lunch hour, or simply when it's time to walk the dog, fire up My way of St. James and make your way to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela!

Good road pilgrim!
