Pilgrim’s Mass is held every day at 12.00 p.m. and 7.30 a.m. In Holy Years the number of pilgrim masses increases, due to the large influx of pilgrims. If you want to find sitting room you should arrive early, as these masses are always very busy.
Priests who wish to concelebrate should contact the Sacristy of the Cathedral at least 20 minutes before Mass.
At the beginning of the Mass, and as a special welcome, a list of pilgrims who have arrived in Santiago and passed through the Pilgrim’s Office in the last 24 hours is read out, mentioning the starting points of their pilgrimage and their nationalities or the provinces they come from.
