For over a thousand years, pilgrims have walked the road to Santiago de Compostela. The pilgrimage is known as the Camino de Santiago – in search of miracles, insight, salvation, or adventure. In 2004, photographer Peter Coffman, along with his wife and friends, followed in the footsteps of the millions of pilgrims to this holy site.

The resulting exhibition is a personal record of the 1000km journey across a wondrous range of physical, emotional, and human landscapes.

Find these contemplative photographs just steps from our majestic Salvador Dali masterpiece Santiago el Grande.
