Sanctuary of St. Ignatius of Loyola at His Birthplace in Azpeitia (Spain)

A magnificent sanctuary located in the Spanish countryside!  Well worth a visit.  OC-Travel led a terrific pilgrimage here; we toured the "castle" where the saint was born and celebrated Holy Mass in room where he experienced his conversion.

The Jesuit baroque sanctuary is tremendous.  The brown brick structure, attached to the sanctuary, is his birthplace.  The bottom photo is of the guesthouse (oddly named Hotel Arrupe).  It was a great privilege to lead a pilgrimage here and to pray with the group at this holy place.

Pastors, contact me to organize a fabulous Fatima-Lourdes-Santiago pilgrimage for you and your parishioners which can include a stop here.  

St. Ignatius, pray for us!
