In this course, students will learn about pilgrimage, in particular about the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage route over which people have traveled for over one thousand years and which is currently experiencing a rise in popularity. Students will find out about Spanish and French history and about the different kinds of literature that the Camino has inspired (fiction, including legends, and autobiography). Students will learn about Le Puy and its connection with Regis in addition to its importance for the Camino in France. This course will be taught in English but those majoring in history, world languages, and cultural heritage (Hispanic studies concentration) need to complete the majority of written work (essays, journals, and exams) in Spanish.

Prerequisite: SP 202 or equivalent for history, world languages, and cultural heritage majors (Hispanic studies concentration). For other students there is no prerequisite.
