Holy Year 2010 with 6 Pilgrims Masses per Day


The video above shows a press conference in Santiago were the Catholic Church in Santiago presented their plan for next years Holy Year celebrations. Fore those not fluent in Galician, here are some points:

  • There will be 6 pilgrims masses per day.
  • There will be a max of 1200 people allowed into the cathedral at any time. There will be guards outside controlling the entrances.
  • They are still trying to get the pope to visits Santiago next year. Nothing has been confirmed yet.
  • Plaza Quintana (behind the cathedral) will be used less for “events” like concerts next year, to make room for pilgrims lining up to go through the Holy door.

At the end of the video clip there are some pictures form a City Council meeting in Santiago were they also discussed some new items that they are working on for pilgrims next year. One of them is a luggage storage facility in “Xoan 23”, close to the entrance to Plaza de Obradoiro.
