Your final day’s walking and a definite highlight brings you to the famous Santiago de Compostela. First of all visit the Sanctuary of Escravitude, and the Alto de O Milladoiro, where pilgrims used to kneel when they first saw the Cathedral of Santiago.  Shortly after arrive at the historic centre of Santiago by A Porta Faxeira and continue to the famous Plaza del Obradoiro,  where the beautiful Cathedral sits and where all pilgrims converge.
