To have an Argentine pilgrimage route, open all the year round, to the Sanctuary of the Mother of The Divined Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
The Argentine Camino a Salta (Route to Salta), is inspired in the Brazilian Caminho da Fe (Walk of Faith) and the millenary Spanish Camino de Santiago de Compostela (Route of Santiago de Compostela or Way of Saint James).
The Route was created to help pilgrims who want to walk up to the Immaculate Mother of The Divined Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, better known as Virgin Mary’s Sanctuary, by offering them the necessary resting places.
By following the 103 kilometres of yellow arrows and route signs that show the way to the Sanctuary, pilgrims will reinforce their faith, enjoy privileged landscapes, and overcome the different challenges that may arise during the way. Also, they will experience moments of reflection, peace, faith, and physical and mental health; the integration of man with nature.
The Route was inaugurated with the first pilgrimage that took place on June 17-20, 2015. The pilgrims walked from the Cathedral of the city of San Salvador de Jujuy to the Sanctuary of Virgin Mary in Salta. The Route might be extended by adding new towns and cities.
Pilgrims should organize their own pilgrimage.
