    We are in Pedrouzo, and wont be arriving in Santiago until noon tomorrow the earliest. When is the big mass with the pilgrims and Botafumeiro? Do you go to the mass first or get your Compostela? How long does it take to get the compostela? - are there big lines? I am so excited and so close...

    Scattered comments on Santiago-Muxia-Fisterre

    Thanks for the details - I am going to take this with me as I am walking from Santiago to Muxia then to Finisterra, and so many posts about lost signs etc. So hopefully we'll get there without backtracking. Buen Camino. Siva

    Santiago to Finisterre or Muxia - want to do both, which one first and last?

    Thanks so much for your kindness and sharing your stories and experiences. From what I've been able to piece together I will be going from Santiago to Muxia first and stay overnight, plus a full day to do nothing - as I am around the weekend of July 25 St. James festival in Santiago and want...

    How busy is Santiago on closer to July 25 or that weekend?

    Since St. James festival July 25 was cancelled last year due to the train tragedy, how busy will it be this year? Does it get busy few days before it or just the weekend - looks like I will be getting closer to Santiago according to my schedule - I just want to avoid Santiago since there will...

    Santiago to Finisterre or Muxia - want to do both, which one first and last?

    Thanks what you said makes good sense to me - I will walk to Muxia first and then to Finisterre as I really want to sit at the edge of the world or once it was and finish with that note. I cant wait, thanks all for your replies.

    Pilgrims passport, credential in Astroga?

    Thanks for all your responses - I already have my passport from last year, its almost full and I need a new one to take me to Santiago. I will go to the Tourist Office near the Gaudi Museum to get it as some Alburge don't give you passport if you are not staying there.

    Does JacoTrans (or similar) exist on the Santiago-Finisterre-Muxia route?

    I used them when I hurt my foot and I couldn't walk with my pack, they are awesome! Here is the link and they do from Finisterre to Muxia as well.. their hotel listings too. You have to tell them where to pick it up and put the money in a envelope. I paid it in lump sum so I didn't have to find...

    How busy is July?

    I am starting from Astroga July 6 and walking to Muxia - how busy will it be? I walked from SJPP to Logrono last July and it was empty since it was so hot. I walked from Logrono to Molinaseca last September, it was busy and it was also warm. Any suggestions for this leg of the trip from...

    Visiting Castillo de los Templarios in Ponferrada

    Is this castle open during the day - We will be staying at Molinaseca the night before and if we walk to Ponferrada will it be open? Not everyday you get a chance to see a magnificent 12th century Templar Castle in tact and what are our chances to see it? I found generally things are closed...

    Train or Bus from Santiago to Astroga

    You guys are the best! I just figured out that I can take an ALSA bus from Madrid to Astroa - 1:45pm to 6pm.. the best choice for me since I don't have to switch! Now how easy is to book the tickets online since some bus companies don't like to sell the tickets until an hour or two before the...

    Train or Bus from Santiago to Astroga

    I am finishing my Camino this year as I left off last year in Molinaseca - but I am willing to back track couple of days since I want my friend to see Astroga and walk couple of days to get my legs back before getting ready for O'Cebreiro. http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/index.html The train...

    Major cause of blisters and other foot ailments

    Walked from SJPP to Molinaseca = 558 km = 0 blisters! Sock liners or no liners, need to get a comfortable good pair of hiking shoes and walk with them day and night and get them mold to your feet. Start adding socks that you would wear for medium- heavy hikes, they are expensive and you can buy...
