All the pilgrims numbers for the first 4 months of 2014


It appeared in the first couple of months of the 2014 that due to persistent bad weather numbers the number of pilgrims arriving in Santiago was reduced.

However Holy Week and Easter were late this year and brought a bumper amount of pilgrims to the city. In the 10 days from Viernes de Dolores (the Friday before Palm Sunday) to Easter Monday 9,055 Compostelas were issued by the Pilgrims’ Office.


The figures for the first four months of the year are now available showing a 7% increase in pilgrims compared to the previous year.

Total number of pilgrims who registered at the Pilgrims´Office in Santiago from 1 January 2014 to 30 April 2014: 22,374

The number in the same period in 2013 was 20,950

  2. Hi again Johnnie,
    Please make a small dent in my ignorance...what does 'Oikoten' mean? My guess is something like 'other' or 'undisclosed' or 'didn't say' or 'unknown' ....????
    Thanks
    Cecelia
