The hand of St James and the cathedral of Santiago
I’ve cycled 2430 kilometres (1500 miles) from home to Santiago de Compostela. The target is the Great Baroque Cathedral where the cousin of Christ, St James the apostle is said to be buried. Everyday they say a pilgrim mass for the hundreds of pilgrims who arrive in the city each day.
Last year 300,000 finished their Camino at Santiago. The highlight of the pilgrim mass is the giant swinging incense burner – the Botafumeiro – eight men are needed to pull on the rope.
