SdC recce

Hi all.
I have a cheap return flight to Santiargo from Liverpool over 3 days late Nov, I really only have one full day in the area and I am considering if it would be of benefit to walk the last lap of either the Camino Frances or the Via de Plata, it is my intention to cycle the full length of the VdP next April/May. Or would my time be better spent in seeing SdC.
Any comments / suggestions would be most appreciated.
(Time spent on a recce's is never wasted)
Best wishes Joe

i would personally take the time to see the city. walk the streets and people watch, since you'll be back later.

nothing about the camino nor santiago de compostela should be rushed. :eek:) but that's just me. if you can do a leisurely bike trek in a day, that would have it's rewards as well.

bom caminho,


Time of past OR future Camino
First one Frances 1999 (from Burgos), since then...over 100 in Galicia, Portugal, Basque....
Enjoy the city - there is so much to see, do and eat that you will have plenty to do and not enough time. In addition, the last 5-10 kms into Santiago are city, urban walking - going by tv and radio stations, round abouts, etc.

Have Fun!

An interesting article about Santiago.
The pilgrim office website is currently showing a total of 4,108 Compostelas issued today. That may not even be the final figure for the day. In the year I walked my first Camino there were 4,918...
Is it my imagination or is there not an announcement before the Pilgrim Masses at the Cathedral asking people NOT to take photos or videotape - which would include the swinging of the Botafumeiro?
