          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 had too much wine, and were really just totally silly. Untill we realised that we had no idea where we were going, got a cab and was driven to the hotel. WHAT a find - the most beautiful little country hotel, warm, cosy rooms and wonderful big fire! The others at the inn looked at as with utter amazement - partly because we were so wet and partly because we could not stop laughing! We had a shower, and then settled next to fire with some ...

          ... analyzing the construction (he always notices such interesting details I would never otherwise see), Edu noticed the door to the bell tower was wide open...just inviting us to climb up. We did, it was dark - but I used my flashlight app. The stairs were narrow and inconsistent in size. Once we got up to the top - the views - oh my! After I hit my head on one of the bells, Mary snapped some photos. We climbed down and continued John's Guided ...

          ... lane in front of cathedral and there was a queue of about 80 walkers waiting in line to get their coveted piece of parchment. Pilgrims were from all over the World and of every age almost.
          It's a pity there are so many people begging around Santiago including quite near the cathedral.
          I enjoyed sitting down and watching the pilgrims arriving and strangers who met on the walk saying their farewell to new friends.
          I felt like a cheat having come ...

          ... we created our own tour. We saw the tree of life that pilgrims for centuries have touched their hands to the same spot. Unfortunately, that means today that it is cordoned off to protect its longevity. The outside and some of the main entrance interior were being restored and scaffolded. So some of the original beauty was obscured from our view. However, one can't ...

          ... in Galicia. The legend says that after St. James was beheaded, his followers retrieved his body and made it to the beaches nearby to Santiago de Compostela. His body was covered with scallop shells. His body is said to be buried in the cathedral in Santiago. St. James and his brother St. John were both present at the Last Supper and very close to Jesus.
