Santiago de Compostela is a “Christian Mecca”.
There is a legend about how the Apostle James the Elder, a disciple and close friend of Christ, came to preach the Gospel to one of the outlying Roman provinces of Spain. Upon his return to Palestine, he was beheaded by Herod. His remains were laid by faithful disciples in a boat and floated out to sea, his body was later miraculously thrown ashore at the mouth of the river near the present city.
The remains of the Apostle James were buried in the city cathedral. Therefore, the city since early medieval times is the third holiest site of the Catholic world (after Rome and Jerusalem), the center of the Catholic archdiocese and pilgrimage destination and the route of the famous Way of St James which covers the whole of Europe.
