How sweet! First there was a post-pilgrimage baptism, now a post-pilgrimage wedding...I wonder if there will ever be a post-pilgrimage funeral ;-)

Heaven knows we have had far too many pilgrim deaths on the Camino this year.

marriage

When working as a hospitaleros in Rabanal during May 2 pilgrims actually got married in the church. They had already had the civil ceremony but wanted also to have the religious service. The service was attended by pilgrims. A great event for the Camino.

With apologies to @JLV, whose thread I have now closed, let’s start a new Santiago restaurant thread. Any accurate information about your favorite places in Santiago is most welcome — as I noted...
Hi , I am arriving by train from Leon at 10:30pm this Friday night and I’m trying to find somewhere very close by for the one night. Rather nervous at that time of night on my own! Many thanks...
