Each and every day a special mass in Catedral de Santiago for pilgrims who have walked El Camino de Santiago.

Today Sunday, the cathedral packed, standing room only.

No sooner had the mass  finished, then another mass presided over by the Bishop.

For the midday mass, there was no swinging of the censer or Botafumeiro, but for the mass that followed there was. The difference to the other days, it was allowed to slowly slowly, swing to a halt.

Each day at midday, a special mass in Catedral de Santiago for pilgrims who have walked El Camino de Santiago.

I was not sure what to expect, a cathedral full of pilgrims, pilgrims lining up to be blessed.

From what I could follow, a list of pilgrims read out.

As with special mass last night, the censer or Botafumeiro was swung.
