Day 21. Santiago

Burgos to Santiago. …… 306 miles later we have arrived in Santiago. The pilgrimage came to an end with the pilgrim Mass, prayers at the tomb of St James the apostle, lighting of candles in the cathedral and the awarding of the compostela. We presented our credencial at the pilgrim office and received the pilgrimage certificate and the certificate distance to prove that we have walked the Camino Frances from St Jean pied de port to Santiago. The sense of achievement is very real. Tomorrow is a long day of travelling but very little walking!
