The European Saint James Ways Federation

The Fédération Européenne des Chemins de Saint Jacques was founded in 2011 with the aim of uniting all the countries crossed by the Saint James Ways and including associations, universities, social, cultural and economic players in order to promote, share the experiences and coordinate the actions developed around the Saint James Ways.

«The Saint James Ways contribute to the building of a common European conscience, considered by the Council of Europe as common heritage and historical model of co-existence and solidarity».*

Currently 8 countries are represented: Spain, France, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Lithuania, Poland and the Netherlands. But the network is expanding, with Germany and the Czech Republic on the point of getting involved. The European Saint James Ways Federation is the unique referent of the European Institute of Cultural Routes and the guarantor for the ICE label and of the co-ordinated development of the network in Europe.
