At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

North to South.

The Paris route is the road taken by pilgrims from Northern Europe who wished to reach Santiago de Compostela. This axis was in fact made by the Romans. With a stop in Tours (such as the Saint-Martin pilgrimage) it takes 72 days on foot to walk the 1 731 km linking Paris with Santiago de Compostela.
This route is one of the easiest to access. The roads are not rough and the journey can be made by bicycle. En route, you will discover the landscapes and the major monuments of the Loire Valley, of Touraine, Anjou, Bordelais and the Landes.

Since 1998 the Routes to Santiago de Compostela, crisscrossing France and Spain, have featured on the Unesco World Heritage List. Since the Middle Ages Santiago de Compostela has been a pilgrimage destination for devotees from all over Europe. The Spanish church has preserved in its crypt the tomb of the apostle James. Since this era, Santiago de Compostela has been one of the major places of pilgrimage, on the same level as Rome and Jerusalem.
To reach Galicia, pilgrims had to cross France. Several different routes are possible.
