Cátedra do Camiño de Santiago e das Peregrinacións

The Cátedra do Camiño de Santiago e das Peregrinacións of the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) was created in 2016 following the signature of a collaboration agreement between the USC, the Galician Tourism Agency of the Xunta de Galicia and the Cathedral of Santiago. Its purpose is to support and disseminate research on the Way of Saint James and pilgrimages.
