Liébana Jubilee Year
Where is it?
The Monastery of St. Turibius ("Santo Toribio"), located not far from Liébana, one-and-a-half hours' travel from Castilla Termal Balneario de Solares. See how to get there.
Why is the Liébana Jubilee Year of interest?
The Monastery of St. Turibius has been a site of pilgrimage since the sixteenth century because it holds two relics of great importance for the Catholic Church: the Lignum Crucis, the largest surviving piece of the True Cross of Jesus, and the remains of St. Turibius of Astorga. Both relics have been ascribed curative and miraculous properties.
In this Jubilee Year, the Gate of Forgiveness ("Puerta del Perdón") of the convent will be opened again, the 73rd time that this ritual, considered an “Event of Exceptional Public Interest”, is celebrated.
