The Camino Primitivo, The Original Way
During the 9th century, while holding court in Oviedo, King Alphonse the chaste set out on a journey to Galicia in the north-west of the peninsula in order to confirm the discovery of the remains of the Apostle St. James. On confirmation that the discovery was indeed St. James, King Alphonse ordered the construction of a basilica to store the saint’s remains and since then the Way of St. James between Oviedo and Santiago de Compostela has become one of first and most important Christian pilgrimages in the world. The Camino starts in the Asturian capital of Oviedo passing through Las Regueras, Grado, Salas, Tineo, Pola de Allande and Grandas de Salimewhere the route then enters the province of Lugo in Galicia finally finishing at Santiago de Compostela.
