History of St James Day: and the Camino de Santiago

St James, Rembrandt

July 25 is the Feast Day of St James, and St James Day is accordingly celebrated by Roman Catholics, Lutherans, Anglicans, and some Protestants. For Orthodox churches that follow the Julian calendar, it’s April 30.

Each summer, pilgrims walk the Camino de Santiago or the Way of St James that finds its way to the grave of Saint James in Spain.
