Probably, we have that double sensation, of wanting to reach the desired end of the Way, and the opposite of "this ends", that every pilgrim assaults. Stage of anxiety and joy, in which distance does not matter, because «it is already there». Soft road, like the previous one, except for the ascent to San Marcos, from Lavacolla, place that owes its name to the stop that made the pilgrims, before arriving at Santiago, to clean themselves in the river that passes there and "to appear before the Apostle". Step by the Monte do Gozo and down to Santiago de Compostela, only 4 km, more.

Arrival in Santiago de Compostela. Accommodation.

Congratulations pilgrim, now begins, probably «Your true Way».

All Santiago de Compostela, is worth mentioning, especially its Cathedral, which deserves special visit apart, as well as its surroundings.
