Hi,
Not sure just what this is. It’s on the Camino, to the left, just before O Cebreiro.
It seems to be older than the time frame you’re looking for, judging by the date in the 90s.
Good luck with your request.
All the best,
Paul

I have seen the memorial your family erected there a number of times Pia. Some stories I've read about the trail say that the stars in the Camino de las Estrella (Milky Way) are those who have ascended into heaven to watch over pilgrims as they make their way to Santiago.

@jsalt Do we have verification that Peter Catlow died while on Camino? It seems like I've read that this is simply a memorial to a "fellow-caminoist" and not a memorial to one who passed while on Camino. I could be wrong, I'm just thinking there should be some verification, either way. Mike.

I don’t know. I posted the photo because the memorial sign was nailed to a tree beside the path in a fairly remote spot. Why nail the memorial to that particular tree? Maybe others can enlighten us.
