Santiago de Compostela: photostencils

This is another photo stencil from the Camino walk, showing one of the beautiful cottages in the villages that are all along the road. The pilgrimage to the ‘field of stars’ (said to be where the body of the Apostle St James is buried), was promoted  in the middle ages as a way of bringing money and trade to a remote area.  The Middle Ages were a time when pilgrimage was very common and there are many routes to Santiago from all parts of Europe.
