    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.

    We have been annoyed at various times in our travels (not just this trip), when during a mass, tourists walk about taking photos, unaware, or perhaps, not caring, that some have gathered for a religious celebration. We were very pleased when about 15 minutes before the Pilgrim's mass started, an announcement informed tourists that if they ...

    ... noble association for an Apostle of the Prince of Peace. But to return to Shakespeare and Othello, this story it adds another level of power to Iago’s cry of “I hate the Moor!”

    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.
