Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela

The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela was built between 1060 and 1211, on what is said to be the burial place of Saint James the Great, one of Jesus’ 12 apostles. Legend has it that St James’ remains were brought on a boat from Jerusalem to Spain by his request, and are now stored as relics in the cathedral.

In a tradition first started in the early Medieval Ages, Christian have used the cathedral as a site of pilgrimage, and see it as the final stop on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail. Also known as the ‘Way of St. James’, the most popular route of this pilgrimage stretches 780 km from St. Jean-Pied-du-Port near Biarritz to Santiago. Pilgrims can often be spotted by the scallop shell from the shore of Galicia that some choose to wear.
