Official Description

Walk to Santiago via Monte do Gozo; visit the cathedral.

Excitement mounts as you set off towards Monte do Gozo (Mount of Joy), where pilgrims of old caught their first glimpse of the spires of Santiago. On reaching Santiago's historic centre, congratulations are everywhere as a steady stream of pilgrims reach their journey's end below the cathedral's spectacular Baroque facade. Drop into the Pilgrim Office to collect your certificate if you wish, before checking into our historic hotel near the old marketplace - still a riot of colour!

14 Miles (21 km) - Daily step count = 36,277 (Grand Total = 281,137)

Day 9



Less than 20km to go - alas we didn't get to do a countdown from 10km as people had 'souvenired' the Km plaques as we got closer...
