When leaving Santiago behind, we’ll feel renewed and more prepared for the beginning of the new journey ahead, and, the words of the Portuguese Nobel Prize Saramago will make more sense than ever: “The end of a journey is simply the start of another. You have to go back to the footsteps already taken, to go over them again or add fresh ones, alongside them. You have to start the journey anew. Always.”

Hoping that you have found what you need on this Pilgrimage, allow us to Thank You Very Much for the honor given of sharing this special moment of life with us and, please, know how sincerely we hope we may one day meet again!
