Santiago de Compostela

Santiago never looked better.  It was St Valentine’s day.  The strong winter sunlight was low, making very strong contrasts between light and dark, sunlight and shadow.  This made for a very pleasing excursion around the city, one I have done many times before.

The place is unique obviously.  What makes it more so is that, within yards of the centre, you can escape the tourists, find a green corner with a stream and really reflect what the Camino is all about.
