TravelPod Member ReviewsMeiga Backpackers Santiago de Compostela
Couldn't have picked a better hostel for the weekend. Many of the visitors were on the tail end of their several week or month long walks to Santiago de Compostela. I enjoyed the opportunity to have a family at this hostel. Everyone could eat meals together and there was a nice informal area to hang out. Would definitely recommend. Staff is very helpful.

Once a year the Spanish king gives an offering at the statue of St. James Matamoros at the Cathedral here, where his remains are said to be interred and where you can walk up and touch (or embrace, as most were doing) a statue of him. One of the few nice stories ...
... in the Cathedral and we have planned to catch up outside the Cathedral before going in. I know everyone is hoping that the Botofumiero will be in action for the Mass. It is such an impressive HUGE incense burner, everyone wants to see it and the 7 men it takes to operate it as it swings through the Cathedral. It is the memorial of St Barnabus tomorrow but I'm not sure if that fact will be sufficient for the big B to be out. We can only hope. I will ...
Booked in to an albergue called Estella on the road in for 10 euro- 1 km walk from the cathedral. We checked in and left our packs and headed in for the midday pilgrim service.
The cathedral was packed and the highlight of the service sis when they swing the bofumerie full ...
