Xacobeo 2010 (Part 5)

This is the fifth and final post of my photographic tribute to the Camino de Santiago in this, its holy year (Año Xacobeo).

Detail of a pirate ship sculpture at a pilgrim hostal In Castilla y León

Sunny skies on the Camino de Santiago

Morning shadow (with walking stick) in the hills of Galicia

A typical afternoon of beers (most pilgrims walk from about 7:30-2:00, leaving a full afternoon for drinking beer or wine in a different town every day)

Nightfall in Villfranca del Bierzo

Obligatory meal in Galicia: Pulpo a la gallega (Galician-style octopus, with olive oil and paprika) and a bottle of Albariño white wine (meant to be consumed from a ceramic bowl)

Back in Madrid, in the Parque El Retiro, having finished the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage

  1. Wonderful tribute for Año Xacobeo 2010!
    Thank you!

    I shall be there from April to November! I can hardly wait for it!
    I feel like I miss Camino so much, even if I have never been there…at least not in this life 🙂
