Santiago and Tanabe are the landmark cities of two of UNESCO’s World Heritage pilgrimage routes, the Way of St. James and the Kumano Kodo. Both cities have been working together for some time, but this year they are increasing their collaboration due to the Japan-Spain Dual Year, which celebrates 400 years of close relations between both cultures.

Therefore, the Japan Week in Santiago, which also coincides with the visit of an extensive Japanese delegation, from both the city of Tanabe and the region of Wakayama, is aimed at bringing Galician and Japanese culture closer and highlighting the importance of the Japanese tourist market for Santiago.

Japan Week in Santiago is organized by Concello de Santiago and Turismo de Santiago de Compostela, with the collaboration of Casa Galicia Japón, Mercado de Abastos, Wakayama Prefecture, Tanabe City Hall,... read more

Embarking on a journey that will take us back to the very beginning, to the seed, to the origin of a historical and cultural phenomenon that lives on in our times: that of pilgrimage. This is the invitation made by the City of Culture of Galicia with the exhibition The Way. The Origin, a project directed by María García-Alén presenting a selection of 150 works of art and eleven artistic interventions that offer a contemporary view of the Way of St James.

The year 820 A.D. is the starting point for this journey that began when the hermit Pelagius discovered the tomb of the Apostle, then communicated the finding to Bishop Theodemir, and afterwards when the entire royal court of King Alfonso II the Chaste came to visit what would eventually become the city of Compostela of today. With masterpieces by great artists such as Durer or Murillo, coming from renowned institutions, among which are the Uffizi Gallery, the Prado Museum, Patrimonio Nacional and Santiago Cathedral; together with other pieces of outstanding cultural value, The Way.
