Day 48 - Journey's End - the city of Santiago de Compostela

Fiesta time in Santiago de Compostela!

There were lots of celebrations and street parades at this time (right & below)

One of the highlights is on the Saturday evening when there is an open-air concert in the Praza do Obradoiro. At midnight they set fire to a facade in front of the Cathedral and there is a magnificent firework display

This is St Piran's Oratory at Perranporth, Cornwall. It was here that my pilgrimage began at the end of November 2002
