What is the Xacobean Nautical Journey?

SANTIAGO IS A SPIRITUAL GOAL...

The Xacobean Nautical Journey is the option of doing the Camino de Santiago in a different way, by sea, and of getting the Compostela Certificate, combining both sea and land route.

The Xacobean Nautical Journey is a pilgrimage route. We give you the Pilgrim's Credential, we stamp it in each port and guide you to the Cathedral by land route from either Portosín or Boiro.

Santiago is that spiritual goal that pilgrims from all over the world have been seeking for centuries. It is a route that has much of an inland journey, since the sea, with its own immensity, predisposes to the spiritual recollection of those who are capable of seen though beautiful scenery.

From Ribadeo in the north, or from Baiona and Vigo in the south, this journey crosses the Galician estuaries until it connects with historical routes of the pilgrimage by sea.

A maritime and a terrestrial leg must be carried out.

Origin

This project arose from the idea of commemorating, to a certain extent, the pilgrimage of St. Francis of Assisi and the Apostle's Traslatio to Compostela by sea. It was first done in 2014, when ASNAUGA organized an unprecedented nautical pilgrimage, with the sponsorship of Turismo de Galicia with two fleets of 45 boats and 275 pilgrims. Two routes were established, one North and one South. The South route departed from Genoa (Italy) with stops in Toulon (France), Palma de Mallorca, Torrevieja, Cartagena, Roquetas, Marbella, Cádiz, Portimão, Sines, Cascais, Figueira Da Foz, Porto, Portonovo, Ribeira and Cabo de Cruz. Crews and boats were added to the expedition in the different ports of passage. The northern route, more numerous, had its departure from Ribadeo where the ships from Europe (Ireland, England, France, etc.) concentrated, which together with the Spanish ships arrived at Viveiro, Sada, Ares, Camariñas, Portosín, Ribeira and Cabo of Cruz. The participants of both fleets went up the Ulla river in a catamaran to Ponte Cesures and from there to Santiago where it ended, after the religious acts in the Cathedral of Santiago.

Objectives

Unite different towns and ports with the Xacobean tradition, through the development and education of all those people who want to know and get closer to the sea. Likewise, it promotes their participation in events with sailing boats.

  • Consolidate and officially recognize the pilgrimage route by sea which existed in the Middle Ages, as one of the pilgrimage routes.
  • Unite different towns and ports with the Xacobean tradition, through the sea, get to know it and get closer to it.
  • Promotes acceptance of others regardless of social and cultural class.
  • Develop a willingness to take controlled risks.
  • Provides nautical education through sailing on sailboats.
  • Disseminates maritime culture and heritage, and helps protect its environment.
  • In parallel, promote the “Ruta dos Faros” in which it is already integrated, through the Mar Galaica Project to which Asnauga belongs.
  • Disseminate marine tourism, as well as its customs in the ports of call.
