See you in Cebreiro

Every year at September 8 around 30 000 people gather on top of the mountain in the Galician village Pedrafita do Cebreiro.

Some turn up for religious reasons but most of the visitors come for la fiesta. Transportation varies, quite a few persons walk as it is along the pilgrim route Camino de Santiago, some people go by car or bicycle and others take the horse.

The village is situated at the border between Leon and Galicia. At the church Santa Maria la Real you supposedly will find  the Holy Grail.. there where some people also commenting about a visit by the Virgin herself some time ago. Lots of saints and virgins passes by in these regions!!

Cuddle me eyes..

 This cutie is the  chairman of the local flea market in Alto do Poio, Galicia. Staying for a rest and a beer we enjoyed the company of the lovesick puppy for a while.

It seemed a bit itchy though??  Buen camino woff woff.. 

The end of the world

Those who have wandered the 800 kilometers from France to Santiago de Compostela can keep on walking a few days extra, but no more than 100km.

This is where the world ends. Finito Finisterre!

Pilgrims

You meet a lot of interesting people along the Camino de Santiago.

This 87-year-old Peruvian lady is walking “El Camino” with her daughter and granddaughter. At this place, close to Sarria in Galicia, they still have more than 100 km to do!

The picture was taken the 11 of September. Me and Katja arrived to Santiago last night after an exhausting final distance of 36 km.
