Day 8 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.
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.
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.
