Jacobean Jubilee Year – Año Santo Compostelano. Año Santo Jacobeo (or in galician language Ano Santo Xacobeo) is the holy year of St. James. It takes place the year when the 25th of July (day of St. James) is a Sunday.

This happens with a fixed period of 6-5-6-11 years which implies that there are fourteen Años Santos Jacobeos every century. During the St. James holy year the catholics can get the bula jubilar or jubileo - jubilee indulgence.
