Jaume Way - From Catalonia to Rioja
"Jaume" is Catalan for "James" and the Jaume Way (Cat: Camí de Sant Jaume, Sp: Camino Catalán) is the Camino de Santiago route taking pilgrims from the Mediterranean coast in Catalonia to La Rioja, where pilgrims can join the French Way to continue their journey to Santiago de Compostela. This trail is also known as the Ignatian Way.
Divided in four stages, the Jaume Way starts in the seaside town of Port de la Selva, on the Mediterranean, heads West across the Catalan countryside towards Aragón and finishes in Logroño, capital of La Rioja.
You will pass Dalí's birthplace of Figueres, the breathtaking Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery overlooking the Med, the gorgeous city of Girona, Montserrat Natural Park and sanctuary, Zaragoza city and the famous La Rioja wine region.
The Way of Sant Jaume was declared First European Cultural Itinerary in 1987 and Patrimony of the Humanity by UNESCO in 1993. See the full description of the Jaume Way itinerary on our blog, our Camino de Santiago info or the travel guide.
