In 1522 Ignatius of Loyola travelled on foot from his home in Loyola, in the Basque region of NE Spain, to Montserrat and Manresa near Barcelona. This pilgrimage changed his life. His subsequent undertakings changed the world.
The Ignatian Camino running 640km across north eastern Spain crosses mountain passes, traverses forests, deserts, orchards, vinyards, and visits towns and cities. It can also be a deeply spiritual journey of stillness, solitude and reflection.
Dates for the next Caminos organised through the Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality, Melbourne Australia are May 13-29 2019 and September 7-October 6 2019.
