legends & textures of Santiago de Compostela

Santiago of Spain is famous for being the burial place of Apostle St. James, thousands of pilgrims flock here every year to pay their tribute.  The old city is beautifully kept and bustling with visitors in late May, our walks along the winding cobblestone reveal a town marked with extraordinary legends and stunning textures…


The stunningly well-preserved cathedral



The seashell is a symbol for the pilgrims, the joyous sign that they have reached the destination of their journey

 

Besides the symbol, sweet treats and street performers also await the tired pilgrims








Flanked against the prevailing winds of the Atlantic, rainfall often envelops Santiago and leaves the building facades a gorgeous wrapping of moss and vines.



In Cervantes Square, children fill the historic paths with laughter from their soccer games, giving the old city a refreshingly young breath of life




Casa Bierzo fed us delicious El Secreto de Iberico, a wonderful and fatty cut of pork, a signature dish of the Galicia region.



I wanted to wear a romantic outfit that could accommodate the cobblestone strolling, so ended up wearing my trusted H&M maxi skirt, BCBG blouse, Steven sandals, and Pour La Victoire tote.
