Anton Pombo Camino conference in Denver - March 13, 2024

Antón Pombo, whose articles many have probably read on Gronze’s website, will be speaking at Regis University, a Jesuit university in Denver. Free and open to the public. It’s part of a four day camino conference!


Pombo is a “camino purist”, so I expect his comments will be very interesting and maybe a bit provocative.

I've always found Anton's articles are interesting. Certainly provocative at times. I read them using Google Translate and while it does a good job with most Spanish texts it sometimes struggles with Anton's rather flowery rhetoric. Would be interesting to hear him speak in person but Denver might be a tad too far to go!

Thank you for giving me attention to Antón Pombo: I really like his articles and attitude re the Camino(s).
 
I know Anton pretty well, (we serve together on the board of FICS) and admire him greatly. He grew up hosting pilgrims, his mom was herself a "camino angel" with a little hotel on the way to Finisterre... Anton's one of the people who painted yellow arrows with Don Elias Valina; as a historian he helped ID and codify and then waymark the Camino to Finisterre, and then the (original) Camino Portuguese. He wrote and updates the best-selling Spanish Camino guides for Editorial Everest, he's a founder of AGACS, the Galician Camino Amigos group that runs Albergue Herbon. If all this stuff adds up to "camino purist," than sign me up. He's the real deal.
