The great Feast of Santiago

July 25 is a very special day in Spain, especially in Galicia were the Spaniards celebrate the annual Feast of Saint James! The city is one of the most emblematic in Spain and, whenever you visit, you can be sure to see many pilgrims who have taken the Camino de Santiago.

This celebration is huge: the two weeks leading up to El Día de Santiago are full of art exhibitions, drama productions, indoor and outdoor concerts of all kinds of music and street entertainment – both professional and amateur. Almost every night there will be something going on in the major squares, Plaza del Obradoiro and Plaza de la Quintana. On the evening of 24th July, in the Plaza del Obradoiro, are the Fuegos del Apóstol – an incredible display of pyrotechnics that sees the side of the cathedral dramatically and unforgettably illuminated at midnight.

The feast day itself includes many official celebrations the most important of which is an official mass which is attended by representatives of the Galician government and often by members of the Spanish Royal family. Regarding the food, which is of main importance for us, (obviously) much emphasis is placed on the eating of oysters or scallops in order to ensure that the following year is wealthy and healthy.
