Before I started researching for this trip, I had no idea that nearly 40,000 pilgrims a year travel the Camino de Santiago. It's a pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain to pay homage to the remains of St. James. Historically, one traveled from one's home to Santiago de Compostela but nowadays there are popular routes to follow.
Follow the signs
One of the stops is the Bodegas Irache
