Final part: Italy

During the months of July and August 2016, several groups of friars, sisters and lay Dominicans in initial formation will travel on pilgrimage " in the footsteps of St. Dominic" through the historical sites of the origins of the Order in Castile (Spain), Languedoc (France), Bologna and Rome (Italy). Although the groups will not be together at all locations (due to the limited capacity of accommodation in some of them), some moments of encounter along the way are planned.

One group will consist of one hundred friars in initial formation (2 from each entity of the Order) and will travel the “route of Saint Dominic” in the company of the Master of the Order. This is the full itinerary of the pilgrimage:

Spain: Madrid - Segovia - Caleruega - Gumiel de Izan - Burgo de Osma

France: Lourdes - Toulouse - Prouilhe - Fanjeaux - Carcassonne - Sainte-Baume

Italy: Bologna - Florence - Rome
