The Way

Walking The Way

The Allure of the Camino to Santiago de Compostela

For centuries pilgrims have walked the Camino to Santiago de Compostela (The Way) in northwestern Spain. The cathedral in Santiago is believed to be the resting place of St. James the Apostle, one of the 12 apostles of Jesus Christ. During the Middle Ages making a pilgrimage was a popular form of piety. Pilgrimage to Santiago became one of the three main pilgrimage destinations after Rome and Jerusalem.

Who doesn’t love a great story? Whether it’s told on the page or on the screen, there’s nothing quite like curling up under a fuzzy blanket, popping some popcorn and falling into a well-told tale. Or sharing an epic cinematic experience in a dark movie theater. The best movies can inspire a fervent passion for similar storytelling and luckily, this year’s most buzzworthy films have plenty of read-alikes out there, whether you’re craving more guerrilla journalism, World War II heroism, or the awkward bumblings of life and love as a teenager.
