Trekking South to Seville via Silver Route.......

by s.miles

Hi!
I am looking at walking south, from Santiago, to Seville along the old Roman trail called the "Silver-Route". Have you heard of this route and can you provide me with more information about it; or, have you walked it yourself and can provide me with your experiences about it? I am looking at walking along this "Way" in the Spring of 2005. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated......
Thank-You and Happy Travels: -)

2: Santiago- San Cristovo de Cea- Orense- Verin- Puebla de Sanabria- Zamora-Salamanca-Bejar- Plasencia- Caceres- Merida- Zafra- Sevilla

Santiago de Compostela by train

by b1bob

I had a Eurailpass and took the train up from Lisbon. It turned out that I had gotten the first class Eurailpass without even knowing it until a conductor informed me that I could sit in first class if I wanted to because my ticket allowed it.

The long layover in Vigo was the most relaxation I had since leaving home. That was what made it a challenge. It was so relaxing, I was afraid to miss the final leg of my journey to Santiago de Compostela by sleeping through the arrival and departure of my train. I continued to read Cornwell, walk around (buying a key chain from Javier), and drink strong coffee. It was a real battle to stay awake. The train arrived on time again. Was this my lucky day or what? You would have thought that I would have fallen asleep straightaway on boarding the train. However, two things kept me awake. First, I was afraid I would miss my stop in Santiago de Compostela and wake up in El Ferol or somewhere. Second, after what seemed like an eternity, I realised I was getting close to Santiago- so I was pumped in much the same way I was on the way to Disney World the first time. Furthermore, there would be plenty of time to sleep in Fernando's flat after I got there. It is only about 40 miles as the crow flies from Vigo to Santiago. However, the path by rail and by car is long and winding, so it was a 2-hour trip into the night.

Catedral - Cathedral " Botafumeiro "

by elpariente

Los peregrinos llegaban a la catedral después de meses de caminar y como las condiciones higiénicas no eran las mejores , para evitar los malos olores decidieron aromatizar el ambiente con un incensario .
El botafumeiro de 50kgs de peso y 1,5m de alto, se instaló en el centro de la nave central , delante del altar mayor a 28m de altura y desde allí se balancea de nave a nave esparciendo su olor a incienso .
Son necesarios ocho hombres tirando de las sogas para mover el Botafumeiro
Se le puede ver en movimiento , en las grandes ocasiones , en la misa del peregino ( a las 12 ) o incluso si hay un grupo puede solicitar que lo muevan durante una misa pagando una cierta cantidad
Es impresionante !!!
The pilgrims arrived at the cathedral after months of walking and the hygienic conditions were not the best, to avoid odors they decided to flavore the atmosphere with incense.
The "Botafumeiro" , 50kgs of weight and 1.5 m high, was installed at the centre of the nave in front of the Mayor altar at 28m high and then swinging from bay to bay spreading its scent of incense.
Eight men are needed to pull the ropes to move the Botafumeiro
It can be seen moving in big the occasions, the pilgrim mass (at 12h ) or even if there is a group that can request that they move during mass by paying a certain amount
It's awesome!

Perderse mirando al cielo/Loose staring at the sky

by elpariente

En Santiago hay que perderse por sus calles , recorrer la catedral por el exterior , ver sus torres desde distintos ángulos, las iglesias , sus edificios , sus monumentos ...
La piedra parece que cobra vida , en cualquier esquina se puede ver una figura , una cruz , una concha de peregrino, una pórtico ... auténticas obras de arte que te alegraran el alma y los sentidos

In Santiago you must get lost in the streets, touring the cathedral from the outside, watching the towers from different angles, the churches, buildings, monuments ...
The stone seems to come alive , in any corner you can see a figure, a cross, a pilgrim's shell, a portico ... genuine master pieces that will gladden your soul and senses

Squares of the Cathedral (3/4)

by Redang

Praza de la Quintana/Plaza de la Qintana/Quintana square

An important point of interest associated with the Plaza de la Quintana is that you can see the Holly Door from outside (see tips in the Thin¡gs to Do and Local Costumes sections).

This is the east façade of the Catedral.
