William D. Jones MD
Walking the 500
Mile Camino de
Santiago in
Spain
Introduction
• Based in Oklahoma City, OK, William D. Jones, MD, is an
occupational physician who emphasizes a preventive
approach to medical treatment. An avid traveler,
William D. Jones, MD, is looking forward to leaving OK
to visit Spain this summer, where he will follow the
Camino de Santiago through the northern part of the
country.
A well trod pilgrimage route with a history extending to
Medieval times, the Camino de Santiago brought
millions of people to the holy city of Santiago de
Compostela, where they received a certificate that was
believed would cut short their time in purgatory. By the
early 1990s, the route had gradually faded from
Europe’s collective memory, to a point where only
10,000 people made the journey each year.
Camino de Santiago
• Today, a resurgence of interest in the beauty of the
landscape and the historical nature of the route has
provided an impetus for renewed interest in the Camino
de Santiago, for reasons that go beyond faith. Nearly
200,000 people each year now attempt significant
portions of a walk that has many variations, but often
begins in France’s St. Jean Pied-du-Port.
After traversing the Pyrenees, the 500 mile route takes
in the Basque city of Pamplona and continues through
Burgos, Leon, and a myriad of picturesque villages.
Although the weather on the route can range from
intense heat to snow, one of the aspects of the Camino
de Santiago that makes it enjoyable for many is the
camaraderie they experience on the road with other
adventurous souls.
