Torun – Camino de Santiago

It’s quite a way from Santiago in Spain from here in Torun, but the authorities in the city have been making efforts recently to publicise the route. There are now markings throughout the city and Torun is on the Polish Way, one of the routes of St. James. There was a decline in pilgrimages following the Reformation, but it would have been a substantial act of self-sacrifice for anyone to walk from Poland to Santiago. For those wanting to walk a quieter section of the Camino, this is certainly a part of the route to consider.
