What is Fromista?
Fromista is a small town of 800 people located in northern Spain. This town is a major stopping point for pilgrims heading to Santiago. Many pilgrims often spend the night here or relax and reflect in several of the sacred spaces. Fromista is home to several churches including, San Pedro and Santa Marian Cathedrals. However the biggest attraction is the San Martin Cathedral. This Cathedral was built in 1035 in the Spanish Romanesque style. This church may be simplistic but its rounded arches and domes, common for this style, show a form of simple beauty. This small town is a vital stopping point for pilgrims traveling the Camion and the Pilgrimage would not be the same without it.
