Travellers cross to wish safekeeping on a journey
Steeped in history, this intricate sterling-silver cross is the Cross of St James (Cruz de Santiago) from Spain. It would make a delightful gift of faith for someone travelling. The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Some 200,000 pilgrims travel to the city each year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding. Many carry with them a St James Cross - said to promote faith and good fortune.
