Here is an interesting link explaining the Holy Door

https://www.elcaminoconcorreos.com/en/blog/the-holy-door-of-santiago

Wikipedia gives a more detailed history of Holy Doors

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_door

I remember passing through a number of Holy Doors at various Spanish Cathedrals in 2016. I thought that I would be forgiven for all my sins but after reading the above, it turns out that I have not fulfilled the other requirements.

The links are provided for interested readers but it's best to be cautious about the accuracy of non-official information.

Thank you for the information Ivar.

Take care

The Cathedral is usually very packed, with lots of dignities, including the King and Queen. I suppose this year it will be very different.

I didn't have any problems in California but I watched it live. I just had to cast it from my PC. Watched the whole event and it was great.
