To be honest I did not think I’d be into the whole Pilgrim Mass thing upon arrival in Santiago, but to come so far, I realised it would be a shame not to miss it. And what was really neat, we were fortunate to experience the Botafumerio at the 7.30pm Pilgrim Mass.

Beautiful cut stone arches
The main knave in the church
We stayed at this seminary which also housed an hotel and pilgrim accommodation.mmi’d say Uncle Jerry is laughing his socks off at the idea of me staying there!
Finola and I waiting for mass to start
This is where we stayed. We rounded the corner on arrival and for fun I said this is where we are staying – yeah right! But it was the place!
The breakfast room
The hallway down to reception
I tried to upload a video Grace took of the Botofumerio but for some reason it won’t upload. In the meantime, this will have to do!
