Whenever St James´s day (25th July) falls on a Sunday, the cathedral announces it a Holy or Jubilee Year (Xacobeo in the Galician Language). This happens with a regular cadence of 6-5-6-11 years (The last Holy Year was 2010). Next year will be a special year for the city of Santiago de Compostela and the St James Way since they will be celebrating the Holy Year 2021 (Xacobeo).
The celebration of each Holy Year grants indulgence to all those faithful who voluntarily meet the following conditions:
• Visit the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, in Galicia, Spain.
• Pray regularly. It is also highly recommended to attend the Holy Mass in Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.
• Receive the sacraments of penance and communion in the fifteen days prior to or after visiting the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.
Furthermore, people usually access the cathedral through the Holy Door which only opens on this occasion.
If you are lucky during mass at the cathedral the priests (takes quite a few!) will swing on occasion the "Botafumeiro"
The Camino de Santiago walk is a great way to enjoy the outdoors following along the ancient Pilgrimage way passing through quaint historic villages, green landscapes, etc...
People walk the Camino de Santiago for many different purposes: spiritual reasons, to tune into themselves, seeking a new adventure or a challenge, to enjoy the Galician food and wine in a different and active way, to obtain the Compostela certificate, for a promise or simply because they enjoy walking in nature.
