Meaning of Rdo.

Camino(s) past & future
I found this little souvenir in my local op shop/ charity shop/ thrift store and it sits on my cupboard encouraging me. The lettering says, "Rdo. Santiago de Compostela". Can anyone tell me what Rdo. stands for?

Again, soon as possible!
All I found was

the Spanish Chapter of the European Trade Organisation RDO (Resort Development Organisation)

But I don't think it is that

It is probably a shortening for "Reverendo", an honorary title added to the names of Christian clergy.

I was at Monserrat this morning and passed by a shop that I first took to be a music shop. It advertised "Records". I thought that was strange. Then I realized that must have been Catalan for "Recuerdos" and I remembered this thread.
Yes, in this case the stress on the second syllable.
In the case of Santiago , Rdo. can also be "Recordo" (Galician).
