To understand the Camino de Santiago we must look back to the year 813. The body of Santiago El Mayor, one of the twelve apostles, is found on Mount Libredón (our current Santiago de Compostela). After this discovery, people from all over the world decide to walk to Compostela as a pilgrimage in exchange for the forgiveness of their sins. Each pilgrim came from his countries of origin, and that is why the different Caminos de Santiago emerge:

French Way, Primitive Way, Northern Way

English Way, Portuguese Way, Finisterre Way and Via de la Plata


In 2021, the 120th Holy Year Compostela Jubilee or Holy Year Xacobeo will be celebrated, which are those in which the 25th of July (feast of Santiago Apostle ) falls on a Sunday. The last Holy Year was in 2010 and the next one will be celebrated in 2032, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit Santiago on such special dates!
