The British town of Bishop Auckland hosts the exhibition ‘Hospitality on the Road to Santiago de Compostela ‘

The church at St John’s  School & Sixth Form College, located in Bishop Auckland, in England’s County Durham, will host the photography exhibition Hospitality on the Road to Santiago to Compostela through December 12. The show features the photography of Manuel García Vicente, depicting experiences shared with pilgrims on the Way of St. James.

Organized by Turismo de Galicia, this exhibition promotes the values of the Way of St. James in Great Britain, using images to show the experience of hospitality and solidarity along the Camino, in pilgrim hostels and at the end of the route in Compostela.

This is the second time the Hospitality on the Road to Santiago to Compostela exhibition has visited Durham. Last summer, it was also on view in the parish church of Our Lady of Mercy and St. Godric, located near Finchale Priory, a Benedictine abbey, which has a long Jacobean tradition as a spot frequently visited by English pilgrims setting off on the Way of St. James.
