When you walk all the way to St. James, it really doesn't matter what is your religion.
If you ask to a pilgrim along the way what is the reason why he walks you will find out thousands of different answers. The truth is that the way to St. James is so mystical that you will only feel it by walking.
Why does someone decide to walk to St. James? This is something that goes above our understanding. We only know for sure this is a unique opportunity to be in touch with Portugal and its nature, while you walk the Saint James route.
