The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela

With all the scaffolding on the cathedral at the moment, this was the best overall photo I could get without any of it. The works are scheduled to be finished at the end of 2020 for the holy year (in Santiago) of 2021.

Camino de Santiago, Day 37. It turns out there's a reason why Galicia is so green. We've walked in the rain for three straight days now after not doing so once in the previous three weeks, but it's all part of the character-building experience of the Camino. While on the subject of character-building, today I also discovered what shin splints are.

Camino de Santiago, Day 36. Today's surprising discovery just off the trail was the pre-Roman (and, later, Roman) settlement of Castromaior. We arrived just after dawn as the sun's first rays hit the ruins to create one of those special Camino moments. Then it rained for the rest of the day.




Fortress Church

Camino de Santiago, Day 35. In between the misty stone villages and forests of Galicia, we occasionally run into the odd 13th-century fortress-church. This one, built by the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, was completely dismantled and reassembled piece by piece, Abu Simbel style, in the 1950s due to a dam project. It's a bit strange to think that medieval pilgrims saw exactly the same church but in a different location and with a different orientation.

Simple stone buildings, green forests, and the Camino de Santiago: Galicia in a nutshell.

The simple grey stone churches of Galicia contrasted greatly with the sandstone Romanesque churches and the Gothic spires of earlier on.

Camino de Santiago, Day 33. Today was one of the most memorable days on the Camino, because we did the famous climb to the Cebreiro, crossed into our final region of Galicia, and did our longest day yet at 31km to reach an incredibly peaceful and wonderful eco-albergue in a tiny stone village surrounded by lush green forest. Along the way, we had fabulous views of the Galician countryside. The greenery is still a sight for sore eyes after all those days on the dusty brown plains of the Meseta between Burgos and León.

Camino de Santiago, Day 32. A long (27km) but beautiful day on the trail today brought us, finally, to the doorstep of Galicia. The early morning section between Perios and Villafranca was especially picturesque and it turns out that rose bushes and vineyards are a good combination.

Camino de Santiago, Day 30. In the last two days, the Camino has changed dramatically. After 10 days of flat, golden brown landscapes, we're now walking among the very welcome sight of greenery and mountains. And the villages in the Maragato and El Bierzo regions are the most charming we've seen on the entire walk, with their stone houses, wooden doors and slate roofs.
