    I'd recommend that you do a bit more research into the history of the Camino de Santiago. St. James is never alleged to have walked this route - according to legend his body was brought to this location after he died in Jerusalem.

    Also, he was not chosen as the patron saint of Spain because of his blistered feet - during the Reconquista he was supposed to have appeared in battle and helped the Christian armies drive out the Moorish invaders.

    Getting your facts right is just a Google search away...
