IGNATIAN WAY PILGRIMAGE
Follow Igancio’s route departing on various dates. From Barcelona to Loyola by train and from there walk between 8 to 34km daily, taking in the most significant sites of the route. It can be done before the congress or after it. Or a custom-made program for a group.
Spiritual Exercises in La Cova de Manresa to be held prior to the start of the Congress.
GREAT MEETING AT LA COVA
The day before the beginning of the congress we will visit Montserrat and the Cova in Manresa. It will be a moment of encounter with oneself and with other ancient ones from all over the world that, following in the footsteps of the path that St. Ignatius walked 500 years ago, will help us to begin a period of reflection and recollection as a preparation and predisposition for the Congress.
