From the Monte do Gozo, at the gates of Santiago, we will enjoy the exceptional view of the Cathedral and the city of the Apostle.

Probably, we have that double sensation, of wanting to reach the long-awaited end of the Way, and the opposite of "this is over," which every pilgrim assails. Stage of "anxiety" and joy, in which distance does not matter, because "it is already there." Smooth road, like the previous one, except for the climb to San Marcos, from Lavacolla. Step by the Monte do Gozo and down to Santiago de Compostela, only 4 km, more.

Arrival in Santiago de Compostela.

Congratulations pilgrim. Now it starts, probably "Your True Way"

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