More than 37,000 visit churches on the Way of St. James

.- A tourism program aimed at promoting churches during the Year of St. James in Spain has made it possible for more than 37,000 people to visit the nine churches along “El Camino de Santiago,” also known as the Way of St. James.

The initiative was organized by the provincial government of Navarre in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Pamplona and the Diocese of Tudela.  Fifty-six percent of visitors to the churches came from inside Spain, while 44 percent came from 16 different countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Holland and Denmark.

The Church of St. Miguel in Estella, the Monastery of San Salvador in Urdax, and the Church of St. Peter in Puente la Reina received the highest number of visitors.
