SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA
To understand the Camino de Santiago we must look back to the year 813. The corpse of Saint James the Great, one of the twelve apostles, was found in Mount Libredón (currently Santiago de Compostela). After such discovery, people from all over the world decided to make a pilgrimage to Compostela to redeem themselves. As each pilgrim set off from their own country, the different Caminos de Santiago arose:
French Way, Primitive Way, Northern Way
English Way, Portuguese Way, Finisterre Way and Via de la Plata
2021 is the 120th Jubilee Year of Compostela or Holy Jacobean Year, which is only celebrated when July 25th (the festivity of St. James the Apostle) falls on a Sunday. The last Holy Year was 2010 and the next one will be 2032. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Santiago on such special dates!
