    This location is right on the edge of the forest and opens up to the west a large and wide grass landscape with a wonderful view!
    If you have a good orientation, you can find this point from above from Regenstein Castle ;-)

    The Camino de Santiago (Spanish Camino de Santiago, Galician: Camiño de Santiago) is a number of pilgrimage routes through Europe, all of which have the alleged tomb of the apostle James in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia (Spain) as their destination.
    First and foremost, it is understood to mean the Camino Francés, that high medieval main traffic axis in northern Spain, which leads from the Pyrenees to Jacob's tomb and connects the royal cities of Jaca, Pamplona, Estella, Burgos and León.
    This route, as it is still done today, originated in the first half of the 11th century.
    A pilgrim guide of the 12th century, which is contained in the Jacob's Book (Latin Liber Sancti Jacobi), the main source for the veneration of James in the High Middle Ages, named four further paths for the French area that unite to form a strand in the vicinity of the Pyrenees.
    Following the revival of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in the 1970s and 1980s, the main Spanish route was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1993. In 1998 the four French ways described in the Liber Sancti Jacobi also received this title.
    In 1987, the Council of Europe had already raised the routes of the pilgrims to St. James in Europe as a European cultural route and recommended their identification.
