Do you know the legends of the Camino?

Wagner in his work “Parsifal” situates the Holy Grail in the place where a miracle is produced on the Camino de Santiago. To be more concrete, in a hermitage in this location. Do you know were this is?

This is the first question in the online question and answer game about the legends of the Camino, on the Spanish Ministry of Cultures website. This initiative is one part of the Cultural Games initiative that the Ministry has started.

As we know, the Camino de Santiago is sprinkled with legends that follow the pilgrims on their way to Santiago. In this game you should put to the test your knowledge by trying to answer questions like: What two persons are always present in legends at all the churches along the Camino from Roncesvalles to Puente la Reina?

For each question that you get right, you relieve 10 points and you get access to detailed information on this legend like with photos and links.

The rules of the game:

  • Anyone can play this online game.
  • The players do not need to register themselves to play. If you do register, you can compare your score to others.
