Camino Connections Continue – Germany & Spain

Parador Hostal Dos Reis Católicos – Santiago De Compostela

It has been a busy summer on the Camino and Santiago is welcoming pilgrims from around the world reaching record numbers arriving in a day. New Camino Connections Continue with the arrival of Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, to experience a little of the camino spirit with the President of Spain Mariano Rajoy and other special guests.

It was a very busy 24 hours with many special activities one of special note related to historic pilgrim experiences was the signing of the official Parador Hostal Dos Reis Católicos Guest Book. With the Parador being known as the oldest hotel in the world with its historic origin as a hospital taking care of the pilgrims upon their arrival it was most appropriate that the Parador was the meeting place for the official press conference and camino activities. A new beginning of country alliances and relations helping for the continued experience and growth of this important and historical pilgrimage.
