Almost There

The last 15 km to Santiago seemed to take forever. It did not help that there are literally two paths available. No indication as to the difference we followed the newer marker to the left.

Upon our arrival we quickly located our accommodations, very near the Cathedral in the center of the old town.  Our very small room had a balcony over the street with a fantastic view of the Cathedral and opening of square in front of the church.  First on our agenda was to get confirmation of our accomplishment, a Compostella. This part of the journey is the most dull, waiting in line for over an hour with smelly pilgrims, before the office closes at 7 pm to get the official document

(A Compostella is written in Latin and loosely translated it is a document that states that the person named therein has come out of a pious motivation to the Cathedral in Santiago to revere the remains of St. James.)

For 6 days I was in search of a Galician delicacy, Galician Povo (octopus). Tender sections roasted with paprika served on a wood plate with potatoes.

We returned to Lisbon by plane from A Corna the following day after a proper Spanish breakfast.
