The Camino de Santiago (the Santiago Path) in Spain is famous for attracting many people who say they are going through their spiritual search when they walk that re-known route. ISKCON devotees decided to also walk that sacred route in order to share with the other pilgrims the Holy Names of Krishna.

There are several guests already confirmed: Srutakirti Das (Srila Prabhupada’s personal servant), Yadunandana Swami, Amala Purana Das (24 Hours Kirtan, Vrindavan), Partha Sarati Das (the US soldier in Iraque) and many others.

This year the challenge is to walk the 200 kilometer route in 10-11 days with more than 70 devotees in from all over Europe. The Padayatra will end in Nuova Vrajamandala, near Madrid.

The dates of the Padayatra are from 15 to 28 July.
