Everyone knows these...the scallop shell wine taps at Estella:

Many spanish towns on the Frances have some sort of artistic designed shells in the middle of the road or in roundabouts, e.g. Burgos, Leon and Astorga. This one is from Santo Domingo de la Calzada:

The baptismal font in Villafranca Montes de Oca:

In Agés, I got the breakfast butter in a shell:

That's it from Spain, maybe I have some more pictures from France, I'll have to do some research...

So here are Les Coquilles de France, first the ones before Le Puy:

Not really nice...: the owner who ran the Gite d'Etape where I stayed north of Dijon was a smoker:

Near the village Chaume at the Loire river, on the Camino from Cluny to Le Puy the way is marked with scallop shells:

In the restaurant "Halte des Pélérins" shells could be painted or signed, they were later used as decoration:

In the Gite d'Etape in Marols, I found this soap dish:

Entering the town of Montarcher:

And the other scallop shells after Le Puy. Here the candleholder at the entrance of the village of Saugues :

When we passed through Villa Montes de Oca, the church was being repaired and the shell was in the vestry. Nice to see it back where it belongs. We wanted to see the shell as it came from the Philippines, and we had lived there for a while.
