    Holy Year & Feast Day

    I'm sorry, since my original post dealt with questions about the Holy Year, I thought it would be ok to add into my first question. Since this would have been my first Camino, in this Holy Year, I don't have any pictures to post, but fear I never will now, and feel very sad about that.

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    What a wonderful memory! Thanks for sharing! While this would have been my first Holy Year, I now wonder if the Camino would have any resemblance as before? Will one always have to be masked, even while walking? Will one need to have the vaccine to even enter Spain?

    Botafumiero May 2020?

    I've heard restoration will not be completed until at least Nov. 2020, so Cathedral will not be open for Mass, so no Botafumeiro.

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    My Camino mentor told me about the light show displayed on the front of the Cathedral, which you can only see within the square. She told me it was worth the splurge to stay at the Parador on July 24, because the Parador places chairs in front of their hotel, for their guests, to watch the...

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    I do not mean vigil in the liturgical sense, but more in the general sense.

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    I'm sure I will find another place to stay, however, with not staying at the Parador I hear that I will need to arrive at the square hours before to make sure I am in, because once full it will be closed off. I also get the impression there is little or no sleep on the vigil, still might want...

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    Yes, walking from Muxia/Finisterrea, and that is my hope, that it would not be as crowded. That is awesome you could get in on the 25th! I have told Rui at the Parador, I would take any room if it became available on July 24th!

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    It was directly through Parador, the person from there has been emailing me, updating me, they at first thought I was asking about 2020, and sent me a quote for that, and then later on they realized I was talking about 2021, and they let me know that there is nothing available then, for the...

    Holy Year & Feast Day

    I am currently planning on walking during the Holy Year and to be in Santiago for the Feast of St James. Has any one on this forum been there for a Holy Year and on the Feast of St. James? I have already tried to book a room at the Parador for the vigil (I was told that is the place to be at...
