A good stopping point on the Camino

Have a rest here on The Camino and enjoy the first views of Santiago de Compostela. You are nearly there.

If you are looking at this after over a month of walking you are happy-very, very happy. This monument marks almost the end of your journey. As far as a tourist stop, can't see any meaning for the trip but the view is panoramic.

We were slighly disappointted in ithe site. A lot of people rushing past and taking phoyto to prove they were there. The monument had litter dropped around it. The gardens were still being laid and I am sure in a year or two will look much better than the bare sand surrounding the monument we saw..

This is a historic passing place on the Camino so we had our photo taken here. Quite humbling really and great to just sit and take it all in.

Take the bus to the AirPort and walk back on the camino and enjoy the 20 kilometers walk. Take a Nice lunch in the bodegas on your way.

Everyone stops for pictures here. But the trees hide your view of the city. Last place to get a drink before you enter the city

Didn't see much as pretty well fenced off as there is a large development going on...it should be interesting when its finished i.e. will it be true to the pilgrim ethos.

After walking the Camino... this place is the last stop and the first time you will have the view of the Cathedral in Santiago. It simply says that you are near... but looking at how tiny the Cathedral is from this location it still looks quite far and distant. It has become the selfie Capital of the Camino when all... More

You have to go there to get a sello from the chapel to complete your Camino, so there are many pilgrims but they are over taken by the coach loads of tourist that come for a photo opportunity and are probably unaware of the significance of the site as the first chance a pilgrim of old had to see Santiago.
