Watching and following the pilgrims with the shells on their backs stating where they have
visited along the way and Compostila was the last Cathedral to visit. After that there is a
long walk but most of the pilgrims don't do this walk. The Cathedral is set in a large square
and is very impressive upon entering the vicinity. Similar setting to the Vatican in Rome.
The buildings were very dirty outside though and in need of attention. On one side there were lots of steps
up into the Cathedral and inside was like most of the huge Cathedrals in major cities.
lots of paintings of Christ and Saints and Apostles depicting various stages of battle, death
etc. Beautiful organ and lovely setting for mass. Between 12pm and 2pm the pilgrims were
allowed to kiss the Apostle. Other people took advantage of this and myself also, queued
for around 10 mins. to climb the steps behind the alter and do the same. A very strange feeling doing this as usually only the priests get to go behind the statues in this area.
Well worth a visit. and the little streets, and cafes next to this are well worth wandering
