Hospitality on the Pilgrim Road to Santiago de Compostela is a collection of 48 photographs, taken over a period of 26 years by Manuel G. Vicente. His images focus on ‘Hospitality’, a cornerstone of the pilgrimage and in so doing capture the solidarity, friendship and mutual understanding forged by people of all ages and nations, of all faiths and none, who walk the Road.
For eleven centuries, the Road to Santiago de Compostela – the ‘Camino de Santiago’, ‘Jakobsweg’, ‘Cammino di Santiago di Compostela’ or ‘Way of St James’ has been a highway of knowledge. The network of pilgrimage routes has enabled and encouraged the dissemination and exchange of ideas, culture and artistic movements.
