Santiago de Compostela - early morning.





A story behind: It was Sunday, rather early morning, the 7th of August. It is rare to see the main square in front of the famous Santiago Cathedral empty. Usually the square and church are packed with tourists and pilgrims from around the world.

So that morning I savoured this unique moment of solitude and beauty of the place.


Later I took some photos and spent a couple of minutes talking to a pilgrim who walked here from France. Bon voyage home my friend !
