Celtic piping in Santiago.
Walking near the north side of Santiago Cathedral in the summertime and you will be assailed by bagpipes from dawn to dusk in this little alleyway. Not unpleasantly so, but persistent! And they’re not Scottish pipes, but Galician, a province with a strong Celtic relationship as the Celts were among the very early colonists of north Spain.
Praza da Quintana again with Puerta Santa on the left and a comedian/street performer entertaining kids and parents.
A portrait of Saint James as a pilgrim, while his companion blesses some kind of monstrous slug (with wings? ).
Museo das Perigrinacións (Pilgrimage Museum) is a quiet, relaxed and free museum dedicated to the cult of St James, the development of Santiago de Compostela as a pilgrimage centre and the history of pilgrimages around the world. It’s larger than it looks initially, with seven sizeable rooms located in Casa Gótica near Praza Cervantes.
