The port, of course, is La Coruna, and Santiago de Compostella is some 50 miles inland. It's impossible to write much about this most important pilgrimage town- you'd need to write a guide book. The town is one delight of architecture after another; even the coffee break was in an ancient hospice, now a hotel. We saw many pilgrims embracing the statue of St. James, celebrating their long walk was over; saw the magnificent thurible which is swung through the building on Holy Days and the long queues for special services for Holy Year. Just a taster for a longer holiday here.
