- Dominic of Landeveien
Feeling a call to religious life, Dominic tried to join the Benedictines at Valvanera, Spain, but was turned away. Hermit at Rioja, Spain at what is now the shrine La Calzada. To help pilgims to Compostela, Spain, and with the help of Saint John de Ortega he built by hand a causeway, bridge and hospice to make the travel easier. The location of his old hermitage is now a place of pilgrimage itself.
