Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage, October 2009

The 1000 year old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known in English as the Way of St. James and in Galician as the Camino de Santiago. Each year, over 100,000 pilgrims from all over the world travel to Spain to walk the Camino, or part of it.

These are the pictures from the second part (Léon - Finisterra) about 410km in October 2009. Mostly good weather considering we started late in the autumn.
