    The Sudarium of Oviedo, or Shroud of Oviedo,

    In normal years, I'm informed, the Sudarium is made available for viewing on only three days each year. One of those days is the Feast of the Holy Cross -- September 14th. Now, I'm determined to return to Spain in September, and I'd gladly structure my walk around seeing it, if possible. Anyone...

    Video Churches along the Camino Frances

    Part of the joy of walking a Camino for me is visiting the churches along the way. Being quite a Spiritual person, I love to drop in and pause for reflection and give thanks for being able to make the journey. But quite apart from that, the deep sense of history, and the feeling of being amongst...

    Washing a Pilgrim's Feet at the Cathedral

    In Shirley MacLaine's book, she says that when she arrived at the Cathedral, her credencial was stamped and a priest bathed her feet. This was in July 2000. Does anyone of that era or before have any experience with feet being washed upon a pilgrim's arrival?

    Confessions during the Holy year 2021

    My wife and I are planning to cycle the Camino Frances from Leon in the Fall of 2021. We would like to go to confession at the Cathedral in Santiago when we complete our journey. Being the fact that it is a Holy Year I was wondering how the confessional set up might look like ? I suspect 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...

    How many Protestants are on the Camino de Santiago?

    Not aiming to offend to the rule of not engaging in religious dispute, just some gentle number crushing a pilgrim friend and I have done. Conclusion for those that don't want to read the whole post: "As a careful guesstimate, between 10% and 15% of all pilgrims that arrived 2018 in Santiago...

    Mass in Santiago

    Hello everyone :) Since the cathedral in Santiago de Compostella in under major renovations and mass is not celebrated there, I noticed that there are quite a few churches around the cathedral that do offer mass. My question to you is: What mass/church did you prefer and why? I am in search...

    Overnight in La Faba but also go to Pilgrim's Mass in O Cebreiro

    This is a bit of an oddball question, and I did a search on the Forum but didn't see anything. As many of you know, there is a rather wonderful, and often moving, Pilgrims Mass in Cebreiro at the Church of Santa Maria. So, if one were to stay in La Faba, is there a way to get a ride after...
