The full Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola, 30-day retreat, in his birthplace of Loyola in the Basque Country of Spain.  This is given as a silent, individually guided retreat led by native English speaking guides from the Ignatian Spirituality Centre in Glasgow.  

The Spirituality Centre has modern, single bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. See the video Centro de Espiritualidad de Loyola - Loyola Centre of Spirituality. The food is healthy Spanish cuisine, provided on a full-board basis.  There are many chapels and places of prayer available including a beautiful hillside chapel, the famous chapel of Ignatius' conversion and the peaceful 14th Century hermitage of Olatz.

There is a private garden behind the Centre in the magnificent setting of the hills of Loyola. See the Sanctuary video

The retreat includes preparation days with a visit to the local sites associated with Saint Ignatius. 

During the retreat there are three rest days when we hope to visit Javier, the home of St Francis Xavier, Aránzazu, where Ignatius first stayed after his conversion on the way to Montserrat and an optional day in the beautiful seaside resort of San Sebastian. 

The retreat can conclude with an optional pilgrimage to the other principle towns of Ignatian Spain, visiting Pamplona, Manresa, Montserrat and Barcelona.

We advise early booking to this retreat as in previous years it has been fully booked by the previous Christmas.
