Cultural Routes

Cultural routes have gained popularity because of the significance they represent to many people. They are a re-enactment of a route taken by a historical person of importance, a route of migration or pilgrimages of certain ethnic and religious groups, a route that played a role in the development of European commerce or societies. The Council of Europe has designated certain routes in an effort recognize their importance and to preserve and protect them.Some of these routes like the way of St. James to Santiago de Compostela, are traveled by foot each year by thousands as a pilgrimage. Others can mark the development of certain concepts that found their way from society to society that eventually impact the cultures in Europe to this day. Examples of these historical routes are the Amber Road and the recent Iron Curtain and Berlin Wall trails.
