Looking for a walking partner Spring 2006

by Valerena

Hello,
I am an american woman living in France, and I am interested in walking part of the Camino for a week or two sometime this spring. I am trying to connect with other people who might be doing a pilgrimage at the same time. At this point my plans are still pretty flexible. If anyone knows of a good website or other means of getting in touch with fellow travelers, I would surely appreciate it.

Thanks and happy travels....

Hello,

Have a look at www.santiago-today.com. It is a brilliant website based in Santiago and is all about the Camino and Pilgrims. You can post a question in the forum and I am sure you will be able to meet up with fellow pilgrims doing the walk at the same time.

Good luck and enjoy it, it is very beautiful part of Spain.

Best wishes

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

Queimada

by b1bob

From the Galician word meaning "burnt", queimada contains something with a high proof of alcohol, wine, sugar, coffee beans, plantains, together with lemons and oranges. Set the mixture alight and the alcohol burns down to a more palatable level and the flavours of the other ingredients come alive.

Galician " Horreo "

by into-thin-air

Very soon after you cross into Galecia you will come across these Strange and Beautiful Small Buildings ---- They are called " Herroe's " and were originally used as Drying Sheds !!! There are quite a few different designs and make Beautiful and typical Photo's !!!

Cathedral

by keltic

The main spot and soul of the city. Built in Romanic style has added different styles thoughout history. From Baroque, Plateresque or Gothic. . Sometimes visiting might be restricted when mass takes place. At peak seasons and in Pilgrims Mass, it is too crowded.

You shouldnt miss

-Portico de la Gloria. In Obradoiro entrance, the finest expample of Maestro Maeto religious art.
-Chapels; Belloging to different former prominent families. I highly recommend the Comunion Chapel at the right of the main aisle. Seems like a little Roman Pantheon.
Lovely for quiet praying.
-Puerta Santa: At the head of the church. Puerta Santa opens only in Holy Year, which takes place everytime St James day falls on Sunday.
-Saint James statue at the main altar. Usually pilgrims get up small stairs and embrace him. Under it you could find the St James Shrine, with a lovely silver coffin under the main Altar.
-Corticela: Although another church, the main entrance is from the right aisle, getting by Seminario Door. The finest and most romantic church in the city. Used for weddings. You would love the celing.
-Museum and cloister (separate tip)

Hostal dos Reis Catolicos

by ncfg

The construction of the present-day building was commissioned in 1501 by the Catholic Monarchs in order to take care of the sick and the pilgrims of the divine Xacobe, according to the Latin inscription along the fa?ade?s upper frieze. Nevertheless, its construction had already been decided in 1492, coinciding with the discovery of America.

Catedral de Santiago (14/14): The Façades (4/4)

by Redang

The southern façade is situated at the Praza das Praterias where, in olden days silver jewels were sold. This two-arched Romanesque portal shows a series of juxtaposed scenes in bas-relief, sculpted between 1.112 and 1.117. On the right side is the Baroque Clock Tower (Torre del Reloj) by Domindo de Andrade, from the 17th century.
