What is the Holy Year?

Viewed 2551 Times

Saint James’s Day is on 25 July. A really great day to be in Santiago (if you don’t mind the crowds). Whenever this day falls on a Sunday, it is declared a Holy or Jubilee Year. Depending on leap years, Holy Years occur in 5, 6, and 11 year intervals. The most recent were 1982, 1993, 1999, 2004, and 2010. The next will be 2021, 2027, and 2032.
