Join us for the next installment of our Travel Club Talks series, A tale of two caminos, with Bradt author Murray Stewart.

In a year when record numbers of walkers are expected to tread the various paths of the Camino de Santiago in Spain, Murray suggests a different pilgrimage experience, one that takes you through everyday Spain and offers the peace and ‘headspace’ that you might struggle to find on those overpopulated routes to Santiago de Compostela.

2022 celebrates the anniversary of the Camino Ignaciano, 500 years after Ignatius set out from Loyola. It starts in the foothills of the beautiful Basque Mountains, continues through the rolling vineyards of La Rioja, follows the meanders of Spain’s longest river, the Ebro, visits the majesty and might of Zaragoza’s ‘El Pilar’ cathedral, traverses the solitary desert of Los Monegros, before reaching the jaw-dropping, saw-toothed mountains of Montserrat and its stunning monastery.

Finally, 500 years after Ignatius of Loyola arrived, you will enter the Catalan city of Manresa, where the future saint and founder of the Jesuits, spent so much time.

Join Murray in a walk through history, a discovery of everyday Spain, its cultures, its cuisines, its identities: a true ‘Slow Travel’ experience that allows a country to reveal itself with every step.”
