Anyone who has ventured to leave their footprints along the various routes of the Camino de Santiago will agree that it is an unforgettable experience. Not only is it a journey that transcends universal beliefs, but also along the paths you discover landscapes with such spectacular panoramas that it is practically impossible not to want to immortalize it with a photograph.

Nowadays we do not need a professional camera to freeze the best moments that the Camino de Santiago offers. Regardless of the starting point, walking the roads that lead to the city of Santiago de Compostela you can see rivers, seas, forests, fields and other scenes that every pilgrim should take as a souvenir in the form of a snapshot. 

Snapshots that can not miss in the album of memories of the pilgrims

The Camino de Santiago and its routes lend themselves to capturing numerous photographs. With so many years of history behind them, there is an unwritten rule that every pilgrim should follow when it comes to taking out their cell phone camera. Below you can see which are the most iconic and symbolic aspects that cannot be missing in your album of memories. 

Feet: One of the many protagonists of the Camino de Santiago

There is no doubt that the Camino de Santiago makes us surpass ourselves. Whatever the starting point, there are many kilometers ahead of us until we reach Santiago de Compostela. To cover the different distances on foot it is essential to have good footwear and, given its importance, the feet become one of the main protagonists of this adventure.  

Trails, the direct contact with nature and its tranquility.

Another of the photographs that can not miss in our gallery is, undoubtedly, the trails surrounded by trees or large fields that are found along the Camino de Santiago. As we said before, this is an experience full of incredible sensations, and much of it is thanks to the direct contact with nature and its tranquility. 

The milestones and the distance in kilometers that separates us from Santiago

The signposting of the Camino de Santiago is one of the keys to know that we are on the right path. Finding these concrete blocks with an arrow with the direction to follow and a yellow shell are a great joy, so it is another of the snapshots that every pilgrim should capture. 

Inaugurate the adventure with a photo of the start of the pilgrimage.

Despite the fact that there are still a great number of kilometers to go, starting the Camino de Santiago puts the mood at stratospheric levels. Pictures of the beginning of the pilgrimage and the distance ahead are among the must-have photos of the experience. There is nothing better than being able to enjoy the before and after. 

The backpack accompanied by a beautiful scene

In the same way that happens with the footwear, the backpack is one of the most precious objects along the Camino de Santiago. It is a complement that we will carry on our backs for hundreds of kilometers, which is why if we stop to rest, a great idea is to save the place for the memory with a photo of the backpack and the landscape behind.
