It means a lot if you have walked the Camino, and has some great views over Santiago de Compostela, but the murals and sculpture seemed all a bit tatty and tired to me. Needs a good clean up and some rejuvenation.

You arrive tired but excited in anticipation of standing in front of the Cathedral in Santiago. They offer a very inexpensive albuergue for pilgrims hiking the Camino of St James. I’d say it is a place you should hit, but if you are hiking the...More

This location is the first point on the Camino pilgrimage walk (which is typically at least 500 km long) when pilgrims first see their final destination of Santiago de Compostela. Hence the name - Hill of Joy! It is quite busy, with a constant stream...More

This is one of the highlights of the end of the Camino and it looks quite ugly, with the top imitating a rather bad version of modern sculpture. There is a tremendous view, however

It’s worth a drive out if you have time to spare and the weather is kind to you. Don’t miss the statues of the two pilgrims pointing towards the cathedral.

A large monument on a key part of the Camino. The surrounding park is quite neglected and parts of it look like an abandoned refugee camp.

Great highlite on our final day of our Camino. However a word of warning about the next stage. As at Sept 2017 massive amounts of roadworks mean a major detour at this point. We followed arrows from church and after a steep boring descent came...More

The park is large and rambling, and not so well maintained, but it is worth walking through the grove of trees and then up a hill to the large pilgrims monument (two large scale bronze figures of pilgrims). From here you can really see the...More
