Santiago de Compostela Things to Do: 348 reviews and 1,230 photos

Cruz de Ferro , (the iron Cross) is one of the best known places along the Camino. It is a place, where a lot of peregrinos / pilgrims will put a stone on top of the large heap of stones. Most peregrinos put that stone into their rucksack already at home and place it there in the hope to also leave back a bad habit or some other problems of their life.
There are some more pics about Cruz de Ferro in my travelogues !

Directions: Cruz de Ferro is 2km west of Foncebadon !
