So today I spent the day at the Cathedral in Santiago de Campostela the purported resting place of the apostle Saint James.

The cathedral is a pretty amazing place. A tourist attraction, Christian holy site and functioning church all at the same time. I mean there were people doing confession in the middle of it all.

The altar was insanely gold. Maybe the most amazing thing to me was the organ. The piping was 40 feet high and more ornate than any organ I’ve ever seen.

So here are some interior shots, sharing out the outside with my other Santiago photos both here and on Instagram. Enjoy – Rev Kane
