camino de santiago

Before coming here, I honestly didn’t know what el Camino de Santiago was… in Burgos, there are shells on the ground like the one above that are there for the pilgrims, to guide them along their route to Santiago de Compostela. I’ve actually seen people with backpacks walking through here on their pilgrimage. Burgos is about halfway through Spain on the way there. In front of the cathedral in Burgos is a sculpture of a resting pilgrim (who for some odd reason appears to be doing the pilgrimage sans clothing.)
