Verses to inspire your Camino de Santiago
May 17th is the Day of Galician Literature and Galician language (Galego). Galician is as old as Castilian Spanish (what we call ‘Spanish’), and it has produced some of the finest literature in Spain. Indeed, it even boasts a Nobel Prize winner: Camilo José Cela. If you have walked the Camino Portugués, you may recall his monument as you walk through Padrón.
Here is a link to a selection of Galician poetry and poets to prepare you, and perhaps later accompany you, on your upcoming Camino de Santiago.
