The architecture of the cathedral is absolutely stunning!  St Frances alter is wonderful too.
Thank you so wonderfully much for sharing your journey. I might say as I said on FB, how I still smile at the sight of healthy bare feet coming out of the walking boots. Just as Alaric did in the stories. Proof to me that worthy English Deryni do exist. No cloven hooves here. I hope Duncan managed some healing on those good feet. They did a most marvelous job of getting you to where you wanted to be.

Sorry St James wanted to get in twice. Here's St Francis.

Finished the last couple of miles this morning and am now the proud possessor of a Compostela. In Latin no less.
Also a picture of the Cathedral, which is undergoing extensive restoration work, so the final pilgrim mass wasn't there but in the nearby church of St Francis, which works for me as DD1 is Frances. The high altar pictured is at St Francis, the mass was amazing, standing room only -  - when we sang the Taize chant "Laudate Omnes Gentes" at the beginning the hairs on my neck stood up.
The reliquary contains the bones of St James and there was a very powerful feeling in the shrine. We could have queued to see the bones themselves  - presumably through the bottom of the reliquary but having once had a rather unnerving encounter with the mummified hand of St Margaret Clitheroe, I decided against.

Went to evening mass yesterday - in Spanish so I didn't understand the readings or sermon, but my friend and I are both High Anglican (Episcopalian) so the service was very similar to what we are used to. At the end all the pilgrims were invited up to the altar, where the priest asked everyone to say where they were from and then blessed us all with holy water. So many nationalities walking the Way - Europeans, Americans north and south, Africans, Koreans etc, etc.

What an amazing and inspirational trip! Wonderful memories to hold forever.  Your feet should get their own medal for walking that distance. Hurray for you!

Of course, I did notice that the glasses of cerveza were no longer full.   ;D

Strange how it evaporates so quickly:-)
