Near Camino's end!

Traditionally the spot where you would be able to view Santiago and the Cathedral, signaling the end of the pilgrimage. Great views, take time to enjoy Pope John Paul memorial

Great view. If you wish to reach Santiago in the morning, this is a great place to stop for the night. Large Albergue. I preferred to reach Santiago in the morning since there were large groups of pilgrims heading towards Santiago in late afternoon. Reached the pilgrims office just before 8 and there were hardly any wait. Was told that... More

As you reach the top of the hill you get your first real view of the city. The modern monument is visable from a lot of points and as you walk in it is a landmark as you get close. I chose this stop for a bit of tai chi to recognise that from her on in it is downhill... More

Unfortunately, the morning I passed the Monte de Gozo, it was so overcast that I didn't get the view of the city. Nevertheless, as the Camino passes right by this spot and since there is an albergue here, it is a logical stop for most. Even if you're not spending the night here, take the time to view the sculptures.... More

Great location to see Santiago and knowing that this is the final leg of walking on the El Camino. The monument itself is very interesting with the four panels.

Exciting stop near end of Camino commemorating Papal visit . Great view. Make sure not to miss Statue of Two Perregrinos on nearby hill with great view of Santiago.

Located on the pilgrimage route, about 5 kilometers from the city center, this hill top monument celebrates the first view of the city as one traverses the pilgrimage route. Small church and smaller refreshment stand is all the services available.

After walking 500 miles, it wasn't a very thrilling monument to behold! Quite honestly, I found it a bit ugly.

This spot is only 6 kms from Santiago de Compostela on the Camino. The monument was built in the 90s to commemorate a visit by Pope John Paul.

Great views over Santiago and a chance to meet some of the pilgrims before they reach the end. Very emotional listening to their stories. Massive memorial to John Paul II and a lovely sculpture of two pilgrims. A small church gives a spiritual feel to the occasion.
