“Closed to the public for most part of its 500-year history, the Saint James tower in Paris (Tour Saint Jacques) is the historic meeting point for pilgrims starting their Camino de Santiago journey from the French capital. This site used to be home to a 16th century church that was destroyed in the French Revolution. Al that remains now is the beautiful tower.
If you are starting your Camino de Santiago from Paris soon, you may be starting from this point. A highly decorative tower it is a wonderful site to see at the beginning of your Camino journey.”
