If your answer is the Camino de Santiago, keep reading, because they say that you live the way before, during and after doing it and it is not by chance that you are looking at these lines.
Therefore, if you are that Peregrin @ who for years you have been flirting with the idea of ​​doing the Camino de Santiago, do not hesitate, 2021 is the best time for you to fulfill this dream. Doing the Camino de Santiago is a magical experience, not least many call it the “Camino de las Estrellas” and in 2021, after 11 years, the Holy Year or Xacobeo Year is celebrated. This only happens fourteen times a century when July 25 (Saint James the Apostle Day) falls on a Sunday and you will have the privilege of living this experience.
As if this is not enough, do you know what other particular data 2021 has for us?

The Holy Door of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela will open after many on December 31, 2020 and will remain open until December 31 of the 2021 Jacobean Holy Year.

And if you are a believer, during the Xacobeo, the Catholic Church has the power to grant forgiveness of all sins to those parishioners who visit the tomb of the Apostle Santiago (plenary indulgence).

Galicia offers you the opportunity not only to make one of the most important pilgrimage routes in the world, but to discover, on foot or by bike, magical places, fascinating stories, interesting pilgrims, while you indulge yourself tasting its flavors and sharing with its friendly inhabitants along the route to Santiago de Compostela.

We recommend that you do the Portuguese route in 2021, because it will be less congested than the French Way and in the Jacobean Year a significant influx of pilgrims is expected, which makes us think about your safety and comfort when looking for places to stay and eat. To give you some reference figures, in the last ten years, the number has grown from an average of 200 thousand pilgrims a year to 300 thousand pilgrims a year, and more than 50% do the French Way, the Portuguese Way being in second place with a 22% average annual attendance. The Portuguese Way is becoming better equipped to offer all services to pilgrims, you can be sure that it will surprise you.
What we want is not only to travel to know a place, we look for much more, to live experiences that add us to our lives … If that is your intention, the Camino de Santiago is your best option.
Good way!
