    Day In Oviedo

    October 5, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 6 °C

    Today I used to just rest up and go to the cathedral to collect my compestela. It felt great to complete the San Salvador to receive this. No line ups or anything. In the old days, it was considered a must ahead of the one in Santiago.

    “Whoever goes to Santiago and doesn't go to Salvador visits the servant but forgets the Lord.”

    Here is a link for some background.

    The relics here are amazing. Much more so than in Santiago many say. These include, THE ARC OF THE COVENANT, (yes that one), the head burial shroud of Jesus, and the vessel were water was turned to wine.
    All very fascinating.

    Have a look at the pics.
