As part of the programme Aqui Galicia centered this week on the Camino de Santiago walked by galician artists Lucia Pérez and Tonhito de Poi there is a 2 hours show. During the event I talk from different spots about the different  routes of the Camino de Santiago throughout the centuries. And wondering which id My Camino..No doubt that the French Camino is the most popular, but other trails start from different places, making of this a unique experience. The Camino Primitivo got that name being the first officially walked by the King Of Asturias Alfonso II el Casto right after the tomb of Saint James was discovered in the IX century.
The English way has a taste of sea being the one taken for centuries by pilgrims coming from the North of Europe; England, Holland, Germany and Scandinavia. We can’t forget the Via de la Plata that started thanks to a roman route from Seville. From Zamora it has two options; heading towards León and being part pf the French way, or choosing the option Portuguese Way to reach Santiago.

I am interviewed by the CRTVG Galician public tv program Aqui Galicia. about the Camino de Santiago different versions.. From the minute 20.20.
