19th Sept 13 - La Coruna for Santiago de Compostela

Rough night. Mist in early morning. But then a gloriously sunny day.

Took a trip to Santiago de Compostela.

Beautiful Cathedral
The end of the pilgrims way marked with the shell symbol.
On your walking stick
Most ornate altar. All ready for Mass. It was packed too.
Lovely town full of little streets, squares, balconies...
...and markets. The fish market was particularly impressive
Exceptionally good lunch in the Paradore
After lunch overlooking the main square and cathedral..
Finally, a rather rude gargoyle.
