The Way of St James has several routes opened by pilgrims from Europe as they headed for the tomb of James the Apostle in the 9th century. One of the most active routes in the earlier years was the one making its way all around the Bay of Biscay. The Way of St James Interpretation Centre is right in the centre of that route, in the old town of Orio. Here you can find complete information about the Way and particularly about the two Basque routes: coastal and inland.
