Please Visit US aT The Global Pilgrim HOuse

In April, 2022 the dream was realized when we closed on a home overlooking Muxia ant the sea in Galicia very close to the 0 Mile Marker of The Camino de Santiago. The intent is to develop a place for pilgrims to visit at the end of their pilgrimages to explore and discuss “What Camino to do next” Or what other global pilgrimage to endeavor. We are building a gallery of photos in Global Pilgrim House in Muxia and on this site. However, there is plenty of content and photos available now on many Caminos and other global pilgrimages in Ireland, France, Italy, Nepal, Japan, South America and elsewhere. We welcome you to subscribe (follow) and get updates.  Please be patient as we add content. Feel free to ask us to update content on a pilgrimage or walk you are interested in.  Buen Camino!
