Day 18: Near Galizano to Santander

Church at Galizano

Langre Church

Another Church on the way to Somo

Approaching Somo where a ferry can be taken to Santander

First glimpse of Santander. The ferry can just be seen on its return journey

The beach at Somo. Up the beach in the centre of the picture you can make out the landing where the ferry left for Santander

The ferry also calls at Pedrena en route

The camino signs direct the pilgrim straight to the Cathedral

The door to the 14th century Cathedral housing relics of Saints Emeterio and Celedonio

Cycling is obviously a popular sport in Spain

The entrance to the crypt under the Cathedral. This crypt is the 13th century Church of El Santisimo Cristo
