The Archicofradia is the organisation commissioned by the monarchs of Spain and inaugurated in 1499 to build a hospital for pilgrims. It was to be “a Confraternity ordered and instituted, of both sexes, from whichever province or nation, in any part of the world”. Build and run a hospital it did in the building which is now the Parador, the Hostal los Reyes Catolicos. In modern times this religious organisation supports projects to help pilgrims and to encourage pilgrims to be of service to other pilgrims.

I’m reblogging this – it’s advertised in the new Confraternity of St James Journal. If you were thinking of coming, now is a good time to say.

The Parador de los Reyes Catolicos is a beautiful place to stay. Hope you´ll have a very good time there and enjoy it. Andy, when you´ll be in the Cathedral would yousay a prayer for the sake of Santiago? Thank you friend.
