Goodbye Santiago de Compostela

The morning after the end of the ride we had a bit of free time before our bus ride back and so we visited the Cathedral. Unfortunately, many parts are currently being restored after centuries of damage from the environment. The city streets were empty early in the morning but after we attended the morning pilgrim mass (where they swung the giant  incense burner called the botafumeiro) the streets were packed with people celebrating their arrival in the monumental city. Even with all the renovation work the Cathedral is still an amazing place and a great place to end this first bicycle adventure tour.
