What To Expect

Cathedral De Santiago de Compostela
Time to enjoy famous pilgrim mass and the amazing Botafumeiro traditional swinging. The pilgrim mass is held at the cathedral’s high altar every day at noon. One of the most famous symbols of the cathedral is the Botafumeiro, which may be largest censer in the world. The Botafumeiro weighs 53 kilograms and measures 1.5 metres. Using a complex system of pulleys, it is swung from the central cupola of the cathedral, from which it hangs, towards the side aisles.
