We are now in Oviedo, and will start walking Camino Primitivo on Saturday. Tomorrow, the 14th, we want to attend a special service in the cathedral where they will show the ancient Sudarium. Services are held on 9.30 and 12, but nobody can tell us in what service they are going to show the Sudarium, not even the lady in the tourist office knew this. It seemed to me she hadn’t even heard about it. Does anyone of you wise people out there know anything about this?

Too many and too often!
Are you sure that the Sudarium is to be displayed at a mass? I visited Oviedo at Easter 3 years ago and the Sudarium was displayed all day on Good Friday in the Camara Santa - an ancient chapel upstairs in the cathedral complex which is now the cathedral's treasury for its most important artefacts. Access was through a side entrance for the museum. I do not think that it was displayed during the cathedral's services.

We have been told that the Sudarium is shown in a service on Good Friday and September 14. Friends of ours were in a service on Good Friday this year and the Sudarium was shown then.

According to the cathedral's website the Sudarium will be on display in the Camara Santa during the week beginning tomorrow and will then be displayed at the noon mass on the 21st. No mention of it being displayed at the mass on the 14th. http://catedraldeoviedo.com/jubileo-de-la-santa-cruz-3/

Thank you Bradypus. I suppose we will see It in the Camara Santa then:)

You are so right, Bradypus, the Sudarium was not shown today. I should have checked the website myself...But I found the information about September 14 in a book, and the audio guide in the cathedral said the same. But we had a good look at it in the Camara Santa and all the other treasures there. It has been very lively in Oviedo today, the San Mateo festival has just started. Tomorrow we start walking!

Good to hear that you did get to see it. I timed my own Primitivo walk to have the chance and am very glad that I did. Being in Oviedo during Holy Week with the fraternity processions was pretty memorable too. I hope your Camino goes well - it is an excellent route. Ultreia!
