Day 13: Padron to Santiago
Day 13 Padron to Santiago is your last day walking!
If you didn’t visit Iria Flavia yesterday perhaps you can make a little time to do that in the first stage of your walk today. Following on from there is mainly urban landscape. Heading up to O Milladoiro and then down again into Santiago de Compostela.
A moment that is bittersweet for most. You have achieved your goal yet also you have 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.
