FICS applying for UNESCO recognition of "traditional Jacobean hospitality"

Too many and too often!
FICS has started the process of applying for UNESCO recognition of "traditional Jacobean hospitality" as Intangible Cultural Heritage. By this they mean albergues run "by volunteers, in the hostels where it is carried out without profit". Something which they argue is a unique feature of the Caminos in need of protection and preservation.

Great idea, though it's not unique to the Jacobean Ways, but on the Roman ones too, and increasingly the Fátima Ways too (won't count Lourdes, as that has been on a Via Romea since hundreds of years before the Camino even existed, and it's on that too).
