What is eCaminoOur vision is to create digital guides for: people who are thinking to change their lives and seeking information about Camino.
We believe the world is much more than what we see. The El Camino pilgrimage is a beautiful solution to get an overview about our lives and open our eyes for conscious thinking.
In recognition of, “The testimony to the power of faith and the 1,800 buildings of great historic interest that lie along its path” it was proclaimed the first European Cultural Itinerary in 1987 and inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993. There are thousands of long distance pathways we can walk but only the Camino has achieved world recognition for its historical and spiritual significance and, inevitably, such accolades bring greater numbers wishing to experience its potential for physical and spiritual renewal.
