Very helpful staff, clean and super comfortable rooms, extremely close to the cathedral and to the restaurants of the old city, walking distance from the more modern shopping area. We were travelling with bicycles and they assigned us a secure space in the hotel to store them. Right in front of the Credentials office for pelgrims, met interesting guests. Would not recommend to dine at the hotel's restaurant, there are much better and tastier choices in the area. The breakfast was great.

C'était vendredi matin. On lunch au restaurant de l'hotel après notre petite session magasinage et qui est-ce qu'on voit sur la terrasse exterieur? Nos copains de la veille, qui sont déjà en mode fête, quelques verres vides sur la table.

... Camino. Paul and I didn't like referring to Santiago as the end of our walk. Paul used the term, "destination." We prefer to see it as a pivot point or viewpoint to help guide us on the rest of our life journey together.

And how lucky were we when they swung the burner at the end of the service. It is a hell of a swing as it must go out over 20 metres on each side and up 15 -20 metres. The rest of the service was a bit hard to get through as it as all in Spanish. It was the daily mass for the pilgrims who have finished and we were proud ...
... many of the pilgrims continue on to Fisterra, the original final destination of the journey.
Something about where we are staying. The Casa Grande do Bachao is an 18th century villa with 12 bedrooms all with ensuite. There is a separate house for the owners and there is a corn granary or horreo (mentioned yesterday). All the staff are very friendly & the service is excellent. ...
... of course is the cathedral in Santiago. It's not too difficult to find a parking spot surprisingly, and seeing the towers and spires of the cathedral dominating the horizon, we make the short walk towards it. Because of the dogs, we take turns to go inside while the other waits in the huge square in front of the building. It is magnificent both inside and out. Not often have I seen such elaborate decor in a church, there is gold everywhere, ...
