About us

We are pilgrims of Confraternita di San Jacopo di Compostella . In years, we combined faith, study and historical research on pilgrimage, reconstructing the authentic itineraries of the ancient pilgrimages that did build Europe and Christianity. We have learned the christian fraternity from the hospitality we received ourselves: that’s why we want to offer it to pilgrims who are walking in Italy, on the via Francigena , and in Spain, on the Cammino di Santiago.
