    Lovely Taize Service in Santiago

    Yesterday on arriving in Santiago, I attended the Taize style prayer service at 4:30 in the chapel at the Pilgrim office. It was a lovely, low keyed and meaningful way to reflect on my journey. It was presented in Spanish and English and is focused on song and reflection. The chapel is just...

    Botafumeiro - All Saints Mass

    May someone please explain how does getting into the mass on the all saints day (with botafumeiro) work? One of the pilgrims told me yesterday that I would have to make a reservation at the pilgrims office at the cost of $300 to attend. True?
