LAURIA – CAMMINO OF SANTIAGO

Itinerary that embraces the two town districts, joining them in a sort of big ring, including all the main places of interest in the municipality of Lauria. In addition to San Nicola and San Giacomo, the two main churches, the route connects the two convents that are located on two different points of the external road that connects the two districts and the Sanctuary of Madonna Assunta as a common vertex, also placed in a dominant position on both the districts that are in a way symmetrical and specular.

The two mother churches constitute the core of a religious historical itinerary that has the flavor of a “journey” between faith and tradition. The ring route is covered in full during the week of the celebrations of the patron saint S. Giacomo through the initiative “Cammino di Santiago” now established as a regular annual meeting for the laurioti.
