The V Summit of the Camino del Norte – Aviles - 7, 8 and November 9 of 2008

The Association of Associations of Friends of the Camino de Santiago del Norte has among its fundamental objectives the union of different entities involved in the development of the pilgrimage route to Santiago, as well as the complete rehabilitation and putting in value of the route of the Camino de Santiago by the Cantabrian.

I want to personally invite you all to participate in this Summit of the Camino del Norte, which will be celebrated in Avilés during the 7, 8 and Nov. 9, and for which we are preparing an ambitious program of events, which I hope will be to the liking of everyone. The level of public lectures, the quantity and quality of government that will be with us and, in particular, the expectation that the V Summit has attracted between group Jacobeos, make me be wildly optimistic to succeed. It be to the exclusive benefit of Camino del Norte and the thousands and thousands of pilgrims who increasingly choose this route to reach his goal at the tomb Son of Thunder in Compostela.

We also have the enthusiastic support and unconditional OSPEA (Organización Supranacional de Pymes del Eje Atlántico) that gives clear evidence of being engaged in the development of the ways of Santiago from the economic and commercial side. This complementary of the two entities, OSPEA of Associations and the Association of Friends of the Camino de Santiago del Norte, will benefit us tremendously. We also have the support of the SA To manage the Plan of Xacobeo, with the Departments of Tourism and self-government of Galicia and Asturias, Local de Avilés and Tineo and many other entities and
institutions of the different regions of the North.
The development of the Camino del Norte is everyone's business, including those who are settled in other routes because the road has to be just one.
I am awaiting your news and your willingness to respect your needs. Among all that we will achieve, this global phenomenon that is the Camino de Santiago, is consolidated as the major European Cultural Itinerary it is.
Sincerely yours.
Laureano Victor Garcia Diez
Cluster Coordinator
