Xacobeo: El Camingo de Santiago - The Way of St. James
This long-established site for pilgrims and armchair travelers provides historical information, route descriptions, video clips, an image bank, virtual landscapes, a "pilgrim's book" of travelogues, a discussion forum, and more.

The Confraternity of St. James

El Camino de Santiago
John Daganeis created this virtual pilgrimage for UCLA's Department of Spanish and Portuguese. The text has some formatting problems, but the information and artwork make the site a worthwhile destination.

Santiago de Compostela: Pilgrim Statistics
Patrick Dazelle provides a census of pilgrim numbers and origins from the late 1990s. (Although that was quite a while ago, it's a only a blip on the timeline of a pilgrimage that dates back to the 9th Century).
