Cathedral City

I think that Santiago de Compostela is the third most holy place in the Catholic world after Jeruselem and the Vatican (maybe Lourdes is third, I'm not sure). Anyway as I'm not a Catholic its never been that high on my list of places to go but once I did I was truly impressed. This is one of the worlds great pilgrimage sites and the cathedral is magnificent in the true sense of the word. Sure there are lots of shops selling cheap and nasty touristy religious relics but the place itself is fantastic.
