Pilgrims on the streets of Santiago de Compostela, Spain

We visited Santiago de Compostela again, the last time we visited the city we had finished walking the Camino Francis in the fall of 2012. This time, while we walked a portion of the Via la Plata we arrived in Santiago de Compostela by train. The memories of our previous visit came flooding back, seeing all the pilgrims/peregrinos with their backpacks making their way towards the Cathedral.  I especially love this picture as the wet cobblestone street and the sunlight create a beautiful curved line drawing our eye to the pilgrim with his backpack a sight while common in the city is still very special. Maybe it is just my memories playing tricks on me!

    1. It is especially moving after you have done the walk, and made so many friends along the way. Although you do have to find somewhere to leave your backpack as you can’t take it into the Cathedral.
