Dear Friends

It is an honor to work for Obanos as President of the Obanos Mystery Foundation.

We have many exciting projects that we hope to start up little by little and make the cultural and tourist life of Obanos and the Valley even more dynamic.

The present year 2021 is Jacobean Year. A jubilee year that, due to the global affectation that we are suffering due to the pandemic caused by the coronavirus, will last until 2022. We hope that by then the roads to Santiago can be traveled normally.
