Roads to Santiago by Cees Nooteboom is a multi-faceted pilgrimage through ten centuries of Spanish history, politics, art, literature, architecture, climate and people. Nooteboom unlocks doors to a hidden Spain, embarking on detours and encountering riddles, presenting the lands and history of the country with all the weight of a passion accumulated over forty years of intimate acquaintance.

Derived from studies and sketches made between 1979 and 1992, this is collection of 25 thought-provoking and sincere essays covering ten centuries of Spain's history, culminating in Santiago de Compostela, the end destination of the world’s most celebrated pilgrimage.

Nooteboom’s writes up his thoughts on historical events and topics such as the effects of the barren plains on the Spanish soul and presents his ruminations on the history of conquest and loss which the country has undergone. He succeeds in conveying a sense that, though time has progressed, Spain and its people, attitudes and customs have in many ways stayed still and timeless.
