Lebaniego Jubilee Year 2023/2024Special events
Cantabria celebrates the Lebaniego Jubilee Year in style, which happens when 16 April, the feast of Santo Toribio, falls on a Sunday. You will be able to enjoy many different cultural and religious activities based around the pilgrimage to Monastery of Santo Toribio de Liébana and get to know some of the most beautiful landscapes of Cantabria in the heart of the Picos de Europa. Whether you are looking for nature, culture, religion or anything else, this is the event for you.
Have you heard of The Lebaniego Way?It is a centuries-old pilgrimage route to the Monastery of Santo Toribio, which is home to the Lignum Crucis: the largest fragment of the True Cross of Christ. Although this Way, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, can be walked at any time (it also links up with Saint James Way), during the Holy Year the Monastery's Puerta del Perdón opens, an event that attracts thousands of pilgrims in search of the “jubilee grace”- the forgiveness of all sins.The full Lebaniego Way runs for 71.73 kilometres between San Vicente de la Barquera and the Monastery of Santo Toribio, winding through stunning natural landscapes and the towns of Val de San Vicente, Herrerías, Lamasón, Peñarrubia, Cillórigo, Potes and Camaleño. The Lebaniego Way is not just a religious experience, it can also be a cultural encounter that will give you the chance to discover yourself.
