The Way of Saint James, Northern Route
This route was first used by the pilgrims in order to avoid travelling through the territories occupied by the Muslims in the Middle Ages. The greatest attraction is its landscape, as a large part of the route runs along the coastline against a backdrop of mountains and overlooking the Cantabrian Sea. When you get to Oviedo, you can either take the alternative Northern Route or the Primitive Route.
