... side of the square a VERY impressive St James Cathedral view. This experience was completely different from before, and was much more dramatic and appropriate for the end of a journey.
I sat down on the square for a bit while others walked by just looking at the Cathedral. While it was under construction (lots of scaffolds), it was still magnificent in it's size (which I hadn't noticed from the other angle). ...

When we arrived, I looked at a majestic building and felt a rush of emotion. We are ...
