    Holy Mass on the Primitivo

    Hola to fellow pilgrims. A quick question - with my son we are flying to Spain next week to start our Camino - so far it looks like starting in Villaviciosa (if we can reasonably get there in the late afternoon after arriving at the Asturias airport) and walking to Oviedo, and then following the...

    Does anyone know if I will have enough time to get to the bus station for the bus to SJPP after 9:30 Lauds and Mass at the Cathedral in Pamplona? When does Mass usually end on a weekday morning?

    My journey with faith

    Dear all, Some of you might remember a thread I started last year about what to wear for attending church whilst on the Camino. The thread generated quite a bit of response. I thought it was high time to close the loop. Whilst walking from Porto to Santiago, I attended 3 services, one in...

    Churches and attire?

    When entering Churches in Spain, would it be disrespectful to enter in pilgrims attire? i.e. shorts, and backpack. Might it also matter depending on whether or not they are holding mass at the given time? Thanks for any helpful advice on the matter.

    What time is mass in Roncesvalles?

    I read through an incredibly long thread about Roncesvalles - all the good and the bad - and many mentioned attending mass. But no one mentioned what time mass is. I also read a thread that was created to specifically answer this question, but again no one actually posted the time. Anways, that...

    Exploring Christian Liturgy and Rituals: A Pilgrim's Guide

    I’m best described as a lapsed Christian. I grew up in a North American baptist tradition and walked away in my late 20s. I’m hoping that my upcoming (first) Camino will allow me to re-connect, if not with my previous beliefs, at least with something more mystical and transcendent than the norms...

    Closure of holy buildings

    Over 15 days into this pilgrimage so far and the majority of the holy buildings have been closed, can anyone give more insight or share their own thoughts please?

    Etiquette/ what to wear at churches

    Hello everyone, I was hoping for a little advice. I would like to visit and attend mass as often as I can along my Camino. I’m not Catholic or even Christian. I understand that I should dress appropriately and plan on bringing a full length jumpsuit, with a shawl to cover my shoulders. If it...

    Lovely Taize Service in Santiago

    Yesterday on arriving in Santiago, I attended the Taize style prayer service at 4:30 in the chapel at the Pilgrim office. It was a lovely, low keyed and meaningful way to reflect on my journey. It was presented in Spanish and English and is focused on song and reflection. The chapel is just...
