Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

When preparing for the Camino, we read again and again about the signs that point “The Way” to Santiago. While we scoured maps and perused apps, the signage along the Camino always pointed us in the right direction during our daily travels.

The most iconic symbol of the Camino is the scallop shell. As with any longstanding symbol, its origins are unclear; however, there is agreement that the stylized shell image symbolizes the many routes that end in the common destination. Over our three weeks’ walk through Spain, we came to delight in (and often depend on) the golden shells and arrows pointing our way. In addition to these mainstays, we found plenty of local signage to encourage peregrinos and that reflected regional differences.

We took some snaps along the way (The Way) to document how peregrinos navigate the trails to Santiago.
