- Past OR future Camino
Are you sure that those sticks aren't parked there as part of a witches convention?Tagging onto @SabineP 's post above with a photo from the new pilgrim's office. I think @t2andreo wrote a post a while back about what happens to all the left sticks. Some were used for an exhibit in the Museo das Peregrinacións e de Santiago.

One of my favorite photos of Camino in 2016 is of my son and I beside each other with that exact stretch of The Way behind us.
Every last one of them! They will intersperse with other contributions, no problem!
What's wrong with food photos? Each one will have a story attached to it. Anyway, you can cycle back through the others you have used before, because many will not have seen them and we who have may not remember,Won't be long before I used all the pictures from my archive.
I say... bring on the food!
@Phoenix, I took a photo from that spot too. It must have rained in between your photo and mine, because there was plenty of water flowing over those exposed structures in the river.
If I am not mistaken the pictures show the Hotel Costa Vella, no.17 Rua da Porta da Pena. Casa Felisa is on the same street no.5. Pictures attached. I eat there every time I am in SDC.
It could be! I couldn't remember the name of the place so I googled "garden restaurant in santiago de compostela" and one of the entries that came up was Casa Felisa with a photo showing the sculpture in my photo.If I am not mistaken the pictures show the Hotel Costa Vella, no.17 Rua da Porta da Pena. Casa Felisa is on the same street no.5. Pictures attached. I eat there every time I am in SDC.
You are not mistaken Chenahusky. The magnificent gardens of the Hotel Costa Vella are the refuge of pilgrims and locals alike. We have enjoyed stays at that Hotel at the conclusion of 2 Caminos - 2013 and 2017. The owners are wonderful as is their hospitality.
Of the many good folks who've walked Camino(s), I think I would most love to sit and listen to your Camino stories/experiences.Santiago de Compostela

Evening mass was a simple service. Perhaps 15 pilgrims attended; we all sat/stood close to the new altar. In the nave were a few other worshipers. A solitary nun sang; her voice rose pure and clear. The places from which we pilgrims had begun our caminos were read.
All was timeless.
Thank you mspath - I've checked the link out and for the benefit of those who may have been as ignorant as me, here is the explanation. Despite its name, it is a beautiful little village.
To make it easier for me to choose some photos to post tomorrow I will show pictures of places I visited on day one of my Camino Catalan. Most were closed due to my early start but I touched them as I passed. I had taken their pictures earlier on my trip and I'll be posting those.
Today is the Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi, which I didn't visit on my walk out of the city. Its style is Catalan Gothic.
