This seminar, organized by the Chair of the Santiago Way of the University of Santiago, is celebrated with the objective of delving into the current problems of the Camino de Santiago from multiple points of view, such as heritage, the role of public institutions or the sustainability of the current model and will include the participation of several international specialists in the field. Also in this event will participate personalities that starred that day, such as then Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Marcelino Oreja, or the former mayor of Santiago de Compostela, Xerardo Estévez.
