A deep and spiritual place, refuge of all kind of people: rich poor young old, Japanese or American. A place not to be missed.

The Cathedral was the final destination of our month long walk across Spain. It is simply magnificent! We were fortunate enough to attend a mass with an amazing choir as well as the swinging of the Botofumiero - an incredible end to our Camino!

Beautiful cathedral. Don't forget to visit the burial place of St James under the main altar and also do the "hugging St James" ritual.

This is a beautiful cathedral and you can walk through it without intervention. You can go to the lower level and see the tomb of St James. Wonderful to see where the Camino ends.

Thank Cheers03
