Benidorm is now an official starting point for Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage. This route was long ago used by the medieval pilgrims who lived in Alicante Province but had lost its popularity in recent years.

The Friends of the Santiago Walk Association in Alicante have been campaigning for years to get this part of the route reinstated. The walk will begin from San Jaime and Santa Ana church. A plaque with the typical conch has been placed on the façade of the building to serve as a point of reference for pilgrims.

A further 17 plaques have been installed to show the route through the town before heading off to Finestrat, Orcheta, Relleu, La Torre Manzana, Ibi, Onil, Biar and Villena where they will then join the south east route, which actually starts at the Santa Maria basilica in Alicante.

The route to Santiago de Compostela is 1,140 kilometres long and pilgrims can get their official credentials stamped at certain points along the route. The route is set to open on May 15. ... image.html
