Candlelight Procession

Is there a candlelight procession in Santiago de Campostela? My mother was there in the 1980's and remembers the town all lit with candles. We have a day trip there during our cruise and she wants to stay overnight to see the candles again. The only thing I found is there are now virtual candles. Certainly not what she is looking for.

Thanks. I don't think it exists but I will contact the tourist board. It was a long time ago. My mother thinks it was for a special occaision. Still plan to enjoy our day there and have a nice lunch and do some shopping.

Certainly, it would help to know the date your mother was in Santiago in the 80's: Easter week maybe?

I'm not saying this doesnt happen anymore but since 2002 I've visited Santaigo four times, and stayed several days, and never saw this.
