The Way of Saint James is a Christian pilgrimage, really popular during the Middle Age as a way to expiate sins, asking pardon or a miraculous conversion. The journey is traditionally covered on foot, by bicycle or by horse, starting from the French village of Saint Jean Pied de Port and ending in Santiago de Compostela, the Eastern city of Spain. Before leaving his city, a pilgrim receives a credencial by a specific religious congregation. This document certifies the pilgrim status and allows him to stay overnight in particular structures, called albergues for low prices. Only the pilgrim who covers the last one hundred kilometers to Santiago receives the Compostela, which certifies that he reached Santiago and visited the Cathedral in which Saint James’ s remains are treasured. Legend has that the body of one of Christ’ s apostle, Saint James, was found in Santiago by a monk after having dreamt this discovery in a specific place in Santiago, named in Latin Campus Stellae, from which the current coumpound noun Santiago de Compostela derives. In the last decade the number of people who have been starting the Way is increased dramatically. Catholics, atheists, agnostics or on the road travel passionates have shown more and more a growing interest in the Way. In an historical period in which capitalistic materialism is spread without leaving space to the deep exploration of the inner dimension, it is interesting to investigate how and to what extent the spiritual quest is coming to be a human need, necessary to survive to the speed and superficiality of the contemporary era.
