Gaudi’s Palace has been lightened up as part of ‘Ilumina el Camino’ project. A yellow arrow over a blue background guide pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela in Xacobeo 2021. Several provinces in Spain took part in this project to highlight the fact that 2021 will be Holy Year in the Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago). On Thursday, 31 December, the Bishop of the city of Santiago de Compostela, in Galicia-Spain, will open the Holy Door of the Cathedral of Santiago. This event will mark the beginning of the Holy Year or Xacobeo 2021.
Gaudi’s Palace in Astorga is one of the monuments you can visit and see on your pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. Inside the Palace designed and built by Antoni Gaudi there is a Museum -Museo de los Caminos- filled with Christian art pieces. There is even a room dedicated to the transcendence of the “santiaguista” phenomenon in the Astorgan diocese where different iconographic typologies of the Apostle Santiago are revealed.
