This walking tour will take you on the trail of the Way of Saint James, through the centre of Brussels. Markings on the ground, consisting of some fifty bronze shells, indicate one of the possible routes. From the 10th century onwards, pilgrims from all over Europe travelled to Santiago de Compostela, to the supposed tomb of the Apostle James, known as Saint James the Great. At that time, it was one of the three most important Christian pilgrimages, together with those to Jerusalem and Rome. During this tour, you will explore part of the pilgrims’ route through Brussels and learn the significance of the way in which the shells are placed.
