Today is, for many, the most special stage of all. The day will begin with overflowing excitement and joy for all. One last effort and you will reach Santiago de Compostela.
As this is a relatively short and easy stage, we recommend getting up a little earlier than usual to arrive on time for the pilgrim’s mass and make the most of the day in Santiago.
On arriving at Monte do Gozo, students will discover the reason for the name of this place: the tingling in the belly, that pleasant sensation that will invade them when they see the towers of the Cathedral in the distance, closer and closer.
As you descend into the city, blisters, injuries, tiredness, etc. They will disappear until they vanish completely in the most magical moment of the whole way: The entrance to the Plaza del Obradoiro. Hugs, tears, joy for arriving and sadness for ending, a unique moment that will remain engraved in everyone’s memory forever. So just enjoy it.
After embracing the Apostle, they cannot forget to collect their Compostelas at the Pilgrim’s Office after handing in the credentials they have been stamping all along the Way; this is the Diploma of the effort, deserved by each and every one of them.
Finally, you can take advantage of the afternoon to stroll through the majestic old town and enjoy your last day as pilgrims.
