On a legendary road across Spain, travelled by pilgrims of San Tiago, we find Paulo
Coelho on a contemporary quest for ancient wisdom. This journey becomes a truly
initiatory experience, and Paulo is transformed forever as he learns to understand the
nature of truth through the simplicity of life.
The Pilgrimage has a very important place in the work of Paulo Coelho, not just because
it is the first of his major books, but because of the way in which it expresses the
humanity of Paulo's philosophy and the depth of his search.
