Caminoways.com are wrapping up another great year with an image of the iconic scallop shell and yellow arrow that can be found dotted all along the Camino de Santiago routes, guiding pilgrims in the direction of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
The scallop shell, along with the yellow arrow can be found painted on trees, stones, paths and just about anywhere you can think of, all with the sole purpose of guiding pilgrims to their destination. There are as many theories about what the scallop shell represents as there are Camino routes. The lines of the shell are said to represent the many Camino routes converging to reach the tomb of Saint James in Santiago de Compostela.
