On this pilgrimage, travelers will experience the beauty, faith and cultures of Portugal, Spain and France.

Today pilgrims walk through the narrow streets, see the thatched roofs and visit the homes and church of the children.

Masses and processions are held daily at the very place that 70,000 people looked up and saw the sun dance.

Pilgrims will also visit Santiago de Compostela and Lourdes, among other sites.
