The Confraternity of Saint James - Camino Pilgrim, together with all charitable or not-for-profit Camino Associations, has been honoured by the Xunta de Galicia by being granted the Medalla de Castelao. This is the Xunta's highest civil award and is given in recognition of promoting the Camino de Santiago together with its values. We would like to thank the Xunta for this honour and congratulate our companion associations, confraternities, and societies upon receiving this honour. The award ceremony took place on Sunday, 28th June. Due to current restrictions on travel, the President of the Federación Española de Asociaciones de Amigos del Camino de Santiago, D. Luis Gutiérrez Perrino received the award on our behalf. We thank him for representing the Camino associations throughout the world.
