Pilgrim Statistics


El Correo Gallego had a good looking graphic that shows some pilgrim statistics from 2006 and 2007 a few days ago.

As you can see “everything” is growing and 2008 seems like it will be even more of a success, if more pilgrims can be considered a success. I have a feeling that for the locals, more pilgrims means more business and more workplaces, but for the pilgrim it may be the opposite, less is more.

I do not even know how it will be when 2010 comes around, holy years usually brings a large increase in pilgrims to Santiago.
