The Xacopedia represents the first definitive compilation and presentation of the special and unique heritage which only Santiago can claim, as the ancient destination of one of the most important – possibly the most important – pilgrimage routes in the world: the Way of St. James.
It does have a precedent in the Great Encyclopaedia of the Way of St. James. However, the Xacopedia goes even further, making all aspects of the culture of the Way of St. James accessible to everyone, utilizing a truly universal tool, the Internet. To this end, it acts both as a Xacopedia in the most encyclopaedic sense – a searchable list of terms – and as an interactive social network. It allows all friends of Jacobean culture to share their experience and knowledge on the subject quickly and easily, via computer or mobile device.
