There was a secondary route, known as the Coast Camino, that started in Bayona (Basque Country) passed through Oviedo and ended in Santiago.
The "Camino de Santiago" was a major communication link between the different peoples in Europe for several centuries. It was the place where the cultural, artistic and trade exchanges took place in the middle age.
The "Camino de Santiago" was also very important in the Middle Age as a religious center. It allowed the expansion of certain spiritual modalities. Many traditional and folklore elements have their origins in this route.
