  1. The Saint's name is spelled Santiago de Compostela. The city itself however, has its origin in the shrine of Saint James the Great, now the city's cathedral, as destination of the Way of St. James, a leading Catholic pilgrimage route originated in the 9th century. In 1985 the city's Old Town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spain, if you have some cash stashed away in a sock under your mattress, go visit this place before you are out of time on this earth. I did and it was the best trip of my life!
