There are basically three Ways of St James that pass through the Tyrol, ultimately heading westward. Of course, the pilgrims did not always follow these routes. Nowadays, many modern pilgrims also turn down a by-road or take detours of varying lengths. Signposted as the Ways of St James are those paths where buildings, patronal cults, documents, etc. indicate a lively flow of pilgrims over the centuries. Over time, the routes have had to adapt to political (e.g. war) and geographical events (floods, rockfalls etc.).
I hope that many of those following the Way of St James are able to find harmony in their own, distinctive life. I wish upon those making their way along this path that light is shed on their relationships and ties and that the face of God is perceived more clearly. I pray that the pilgrims get closer to the mystery of God.
