The St Michael's Way is part of a designated European Cultural Route, the only designated cultural route in Britain because of its association with the network of pilgrim routes to St James' Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, north western Spain.

The route is said to have been created in pre-historic times by missionaries and pilgrims from Wales and Ireland who did not want to navigate around Land's End. Instead they would leave their ships in Lelant and walk across the peninsula to Marazion.
