Description

The fact that this beautiful Camino is known as Camino Primitivo is obviously not by chance. Shortly after the discovery of the tomb of the Apostle, through the beautiful story or legend that has remained for posterity, the first person to know about the discovery was the then Asturian King Alfonso II the Chaste, who was also the first monarch to go on pilgrimage, taking the road that runs through the interior of Asturias to Lugo and later to the capital of Compostela. This primitive, hard and rugged, but impressive and beautiful route, is preserved with all its charm, saving the occasional modifications that modern infrastructures force to make, as in fact happens in all routes or roads. The end of it, very close to Santiago de Compostela, merges with the great pilgrimage route, the French Way.
