Pamplona chairs the Board of Directors of the Association of Municipalities of the Camino de Santiago held this Friday in Villalcázar de Sirga, in Palencia.
Among the topics discussed was a future agreement with Fundación Misterio de Obanos, to strengthen the tradition of the Misterio de Obanos.
The mayoress of Pamplona, Cristina Ibarrola, chaired the meeting of the Board of Directors of the Association of Municipalities of the Camino de Santiago (AMCS), which was held this Friday in Villalcázar de Sirga, in the province of Palencia. This meeting has served as a first contact between the participants, since new members have joined the governing bodies. In addition to the members of the Board of Directors of the AMCS and the Technical Secretariat, Management and Scientific Committee, the local mayor, Moisés Payo Nevares, participated in the meeting.
The meeting addressed various issues related to the activity of the AMCS, among them, the projects and activities already implemented and those currently being developed. The Association has two pending collaboration agreements for the development and promotion of the French Way of St. James. One, with the Mystery of Obanos Foundation, to enhance and preserve the tradition of the Mystery of Obanos along the Camino, which could include everything from special events to research and educational programs. And a second agreement with Editorial Buen Camino, for the exchange of information, joint dissemination of both entities, digital tools and the promotion of the Jacobean Route.
These agreements seek to enrich the experience of pilgrims and preserve the culture of the Camino de Santiago on its traditional route, which is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and protected as a whole as an asset of cultural interest. The protection includes, in addition to the route itself, the towns it passes through and the monuments. The heritage also includes the intangible part made up of the experiences of the pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela.
