Santiago de Compostela- 2021 Xacobeo Holy Year
A thousand years ago the people used to travel for two reasons, for wars or pilgrimage When the body of the apostle Santiago was discovered at the beginning of the 9th century in this remote of the then known world, no one could have imagined that the location of the discovery would become, along with Rome and Jerusalem, one of the most important pilgrim site in the Christian world.
The first travel guide book was Codex Calixtinus, written a thousand years back telling the stories and legends of the pilgrims, now its kept in the Santiago Cathedral Nowadays this route it is not only used for indulgence by pilgrims anymore, but the majority of pilgrims also make the Camino de Santiago, for Spiritual reasons, a promise or even for exercise.
2021 Santiago de Compostela celebrates its holy year and it will be busier than regular years but the millenary old roads that you will walk will make you feel the silence.
