PCO1-Day 7 Rua De Francos-Milladoira-Santiago-10.5km

Today Day 7 Rua De Francos-Milladoira-Santiago a short walk into Santiago de Compostela your final destination and last day of walking on Camino de Santiago…

CONGRATULATIONS!! you have made it.

Standing in Praza do Obradoiro. you will admire the Cathedral de Santiago and its Romànic Portico de la Gloria (Glory’s Gate) built in the 12th century.

A moment that is bittersweet for most.

You have achieved your goal yet also finished your adventure. Many pilgrims celebrate the end of their Camino with a good “mariscada” (seafood plate). However, you might prefer to head to Rua do Franco for some “tapas” finishing with “Tarta de Santiago” the popular Galician tart.

The Botafumeiro

A Pilgrim’s Mass is held at 12.00 and 19.00 daily. If you are lucky (or someone pays the fee, around 300€) you will see the Botafumeiro (weighing 60 kg) incense burning ceremony.

Buen Camino
