Camino de Santiago - Day 10 #caminodesantiago

 Guest blogger -

Day 10:
Day 10, our arrival to Santiago de Compostela! Again, the forecast said rain but we had clear skies for most of our walk with only a few drops in the whole 17km. The walk was a lot longer than we thought! The map said about 14km but it ended up being longer. Of course once we arrived to Santiago the rain started! We were able to check into the beautiful Parador de Santiago de Compostela hotel, and then head to the church to see the Botafumeiro. After that, we went and got our pilgrim certificates! We walked a total of 209km officially, and 223km that we had on our Fitbit tracker. We received the pilgrim certificate and a distance certificate as well as our final stamps on our pilgrim passport. We then explored Santiago a little, going into little shops, as well as a delicious tea in the Parador. A lot more exploring to do tomorrow! We were also interested to learn that the hotel we are staying in is considered to be the oldest continuously operating hotel in the world, and has also been called the "most beautiful hotel in Europe." It is the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in! Overall, it was a very exciting day completing our walk, to seeing the ceremony and getting our certificates!
