Camimo Pilgrimage Path Across Spain is Topic of Library Presentation

Spain’s thousand-year-old pilgrimage trail will be the focus of a presentation at Brattleboro’s Books Memorial Library on January 8, 2019, at 7:00 pm. The library is at 224 Main Street in Brattleboro, VT.

The slideshow and discussion will be led by Betsy Bates, Cicely Carroll, and Bob Lawson.

The Camino is nearly 500 miles long, running from the Pyrenees in France across the northern portion of Spain to Santiago de Compostela. Running from village to village, across farm fields and beside streams and rivers, the path is now walked for many reasons and by many people from many countries.

The presenters have each walked on the Camino before and will share their photos, experiences and reflections from their walks.

There will also be a short introduction to a walking trip on the Camino this coming April that is being sponsored by Travel Fever Tours of Putney. Participants will walk for 10 days along the Camino from April 8-17, 2019, starting in Pamplona.

  • Film on the Camino

    One of Bunuel’s best latter films was “The Milky Way,” about several pilgrims making their way along this route. Film is in French, Spanish and some scenes in Latin! The scenes go back-and-forth in time, too, from the contemporary period (circa 1965, when the film was made) to the early Christian era and the so-called “Dark Age” etc. As you would expect from a film by Bunuel, religion is not viewed in a very positive light. I highly recommend this film as a (dark) humorous supplement to this pilgrimage.
