i arrive in Santiago on Wednesday 19th October. Will I be able to witness the incense swing in the cathedral that day or the next day?
Yeah.. it was difficult.... a lot of people were recording the scene ..... I dont know of any other cathedral with this practice... so it was a sensation to watch! My family and friends were captivated..... so much so some of my RC friends hv made plans to walk to Santiago too!I was very lucky, I spent several days in SdC and each day Mass included this. I tried my best to respect the Mass...but my last day I thought "surely it's OK if today, if this happens again, I make a video to show my family when I return..." So I tried to be discrete, and made my video. and downloading the pictures on return, my video was destroyed.
I'm happy for two things: first, that I saw it several times NOT through my camera lens, and second that this thread includes a link to see part of it...
Best chance - try to find a group of wealthy tourist arriving on a bus - their guides/tour leaders get them to all contribute E20 (time 30 = E600) which they then "donate" to Cathedral maintenance and in return the Botafumeiro happily swings. Otherwise its Friday.i arrive in Santiago on Wednesday 19th October. Will I be able to witness the incense swing in the cathedral that day or the next day?
HiDuring September 2016 the Botafumeiro was used 41 times.
