A golden gift for life's Camino
Handcrafted by goldsmiths in Asturias, northern Spain, this gold-plated sterling-silver open cross bears the symbolic scallop shell of the Camino de Santiago.
The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. Some 200,000 people travel the Camino each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy/modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop Shell as depicted on this cross. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
