We are currently about 3 to 4 days from Santiago. I know the botafumeiro is supposed to swing on Christ the King day (sunday) and I saw somewhere that in xaecobeo years it swings on Fridays but potentially only summer. We also had a large group tell us it is supposed to swing Saturday. I emailed the church trying to get some clarification but they only referred me to the website. I am trying to decide if we need to bus into Santiago to see the botafumeiro and then bus back and finish walking. IF anyone has any additional info, that would be great. If it does swing Sunday for Christ the King, which service? Is it swinging on Fridays for Holy Year? Thanks for any info.
