Everyday on the Camino is unique and special.  Always new people to meet, incredible scenery and more wonderful memories.  Arriving in Santiago de Compostela and visiting the Cathedral is truly an awe-inspiring experience. No matter how many times I have been there I am still captivated each time taking in something new and adding to all the times that have come before.

Spain is a country full of incredible architecture and ancient traditions that invite you to continue to discover more. Whoever wins The Best Cathedral In Spain – Santiago will always hold a very special place in the hearts of pilgrims who have ventured here from around the world and Galicians who rightfully take so much pride in this incredible place.
