Xacobeo 2021

Also known as the Holy Year or Jacobean Year, it came about with the discovery of the Apostle Saint James the Greater’s sepulchre (9th Century), becoming throughout history, an important pilgrimage destination, and a world-renowned religious and cultural centre, keeping its extraordinary appeal alive today.

The Camino de Santiago has left its mark on the millions of people who travel it each year, for different reasons: religious devotion, personal growth or to establish a connection with the cultural and natural environment. The Jacobean Holy Years are the ones with the highest turnout. Besides, there is still the chance to obtain plenary forgiveness for your sins, known as the Jubilee.

Camino

Since the origin of this pilgrimage route to the Galician capital, other routes came about, so pilgrims from different places could have access to the tomb. Some of these additional routes have a direct connection with the Apostle Saint James.

A network of different Caminos connects the most remote places in Europe with the Apostle’s tomb. These routes represent a large part of our cultural heritage.

We can help you to plan one of the best experiences during the most important year in which you can do the Camino de Santiago, the Jubilee or Jacobean Holy Year.

Get your Jubilee!

To get the Jubilee means to obtain plenary indulgence or the complete forgiveness for all your sins that is granted by the Church. All pilgrims who visit the Apostle’s tomb at the Cathedral of Santiago during the Holy Year, can obtain this plenary indulgence.

To this end, pilgrims must fulfill some requirements set out by the Church, that we list for you below:

Visit the Cathedral
of Santiago

Pay a visit to this Christian temple on any day during the Holy Year.

Say a
prayer

Attend the Holy Mass and pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff.

Confess
and take Holy Communion

the fortnight before or after your visit to the Cathedral.

Why is it considered
a Holy Year?

The Compostela Holy Year happens when July 25th, the feast day of the Apostle’s martyrdom, falls on a Sunday.

Due to leap years,the Holy Years follow a pattern of falling every 6-5-6-11 years. 2010 was the most recent Holy Year. 2021 will be the next Holy Year, followed by 2027 and 2032.

A Holy Year therefore only happens 14 times per century so during these Years there is a considerable increase in the number of pilgrimages.
