Jacobean Holy Year 2021 Extended to 2022

The Pope declares walking the Camino de Santiago in 2022 is officially a Holy Year

It's great news for pilgrims seeking to walk the Camino de Santiago during the Jacobean Holy Year: the Pope has announced the Jacobean Holy Year 2021 will be extended to include 2022. In a statement from the Confraternity of St James:
Pope Francis has now responded to Santiago Cathedral's call for an extension of the Holy Year to 2022.  An emissary from Rome delivered the good news shortly before the opening ceremonies began in the last days of 2020.  This will be the second such occurrence in 9 centuries of Jacobean Holy Years, the first being in 1937-8 due to the ramifications of the Spanish Civil War.

It is hoped that this decision will allow for a greater recovery period and celebration following the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It's now possible to book your self guided Camino pilgrimage for 2021 and 2022 with UTracks. Be sure to take a look at our comprehensive list of Camino de Santiago walking and cycling tours
