Santiago de Compostela is an amazing town, a stony miracle which has been shaped around the Apostle St James's (Santiago) sepulchre along the centuries, and which has resulted in one of the most splendid and harmonic architectural ensembles in the world .
It is considered one of the tree spiritual capitals of Christendom together with Rome and Jerusalem. Pilgrims come from every where.
The most important building in the town is the Cathedral of Santiago, conceived as a small city of stone centred on holy relics and endowed with its own life.
