93,924 pilgrims 2005

an increase of 27% on 2003 (ignoring 2004, a holy year), according to figures just released from the pilgrim office.

So the trend is still significantly upwards. I have been half-expecting a backlash, as reports of overcrowding increase, but no sign of that yet.

Detailed figures by month, starting place, etc are yet to be released, but the upward trend appears to be continuing if January 1 2006 is anything to go by: 154 arrived on that day alone.
