Ignatius Camino in Spain Walk

The Ignatian Way recreates the route that St. Ignatius walked in 1522 from Loyola to Manresa. We offer Pilgrims the opportunity to follow the same spiritual process as the Saint. The pilgrimage begins at his birthplace, Azpeitia, and ends in the Cave of St. Ignatius in Manresa.

From Loyola the route travels through picturesque mountains, beautiful deserts and wide plains before ending in the town of Manresa, where St. Ignatius rested for some months after his journey through Spain.

Manresa was a place of profound spiritual enlightenment for St. Ignatius. Here he wrote the essence of his spiritual masterpiece: The Spiritual Exercises.

We will walk virtually the same route as St. Ignatius: passing through many of the towns that he passed through, praying at several of the churches where we will worship and marvel at the same natural wonders that he saw.
