A landmark on "The Way"

A special landmark to look forward to along the way. However not much of a view now as trees and other buildings block the view towards the cathedral.

Very beautiful! We arrived here and celebrated Mass in the chapel it was very moving. We had travelled as a group and thus was a special gathering place.

When you view this monument after completing the Camino, you know that you have arrived and your Camino is nearly done. I think that the significance is appreciated more by the Pilgrims, but it is worth a view. The view from the monument is OK, but just OK. It is a significant milepost on the Camino.

If you drive to the summit, you find the monument here, but better still is a walk or drive to the pilgrim statue, marking the spot where pilgrims got their first glimpse of the cathedral in Santiago. We were there when a woman arrived after walking 36 days. She broke into tears at the sight.

A few years ago we walked part of the Camino the Santiago but not the last part. We had read the stories about pilgrimers walking to Santiago de Compostela getting their first view of the Cathedral. But we never expected the sensation of actually experiencing this ourselves and then walking down the hill and through the old streets of Santiago... More

Views are not that good. Nice monument but not worth a specific trip to see. I stopped since I was walking the Camino

This was the last stop before Santiago. Right on the Camino we could not see the cathedral as it was too cloudy and it had rained for the last few days. There is a lovely little chapel where you can get your last stamp, we stopped and had a drink at a little van but be warned there is no... More

Cool weird statue before entering Santiago. Right on the Camino so you know that your at least five kilometers away from the cathedral.

We were tired from a full day walk on the Camino, but seeing this statue gave us hope. There is also a small chapel to visit at the base of the Monte hill.

Monte Gozo is 5km from Santigo and is a good place for peregrinos to stay as this leaves them an easy 5km for their final walk into Santiago. It has dormatories, kitchens with pots and pans. There is a cafe on site, but I was told by someone who was here in July that it was closed. There are restaurants... More
