Travel Blogs from Santiago de Compostela

Galicia: The Land of Pilgrims and Green Grass

A travel blog entry by bryantdawson


It is a full day after my return from Galicia, and I still feel as if I spent the weekend on a different planet. Up to this point everywhere I had been in Spain, although each city had its own special sites and amazing history to see, was very similar with regards to weather and landscape. What I thought about Spain matched the general perspective …

The Camino de Santiago for Cheats

... if not thousands) of miles and getting trapped in the Old Town unable to find your way to the cathedral, the symbol of the journey's end. Soul-destroying... We searched and wandered and then finally we arrived in a big square and there it was. It's quite a sight.
We went to a couple of museums, one about pilgrimages and another about life in Galicia through the ages. We didn't realise that the information boards of the latter would ...

Santiago de Compostela - Arrival!

... on around me. The second one is "respond, don't react" - it's actually one that is helped significantly by undertaking the first lesson!! So often along the way we would subconsciously judge people only to find they were quite different or had excellent reasons for their behaviour when we were later forced to get to know them due to the close quarters of Albergues or walking paths!

Santiago de Compostela

... least favorite one. The inside was just over the top with gold on everything, and it was too intricate. However, it was still really gorgeous, especially the outside. The building is Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque since it was built during all these periods. We were able to see half of a mass, and see when they swing the "Botafumeiro". This is the world's largest censer, weighing in at around 177 lbs. It has 88 lbs. of charcoal and ...

Northern Spain

... lack of English which makes communication more difficult and challenging. We were spoilt in Croatia and Slovenia. After 2 nights in San Sebastián we sadly went on our way across the top of Spain which however was not as picturesque as I had hoped and read about. To make our time more authentic, we stopped at a little fishing village on the way to Santiago de Compostela -our little pilgrimage , I suppose. It was ...

    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.
