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.
The Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality will be running two Caminos in 2018: 8-24 May (16 days), and 20 September-19 October (30 days). Dates are from Loyola (meet at 17:00hrs) to dispersal after the camino in Barcelona. Ground cost of the May camino is $3,000; September $4,750.
