  • Listen the Berenguela, clock of the Cathedral that marks the passing of time in the city of Compostela with its dense, powerful sound. 
  • See the "spirit" of the Pilgrim, his shadow appears every night in the plaza de la Quintana when the lighting is switched on. It is actually the reflection created by the night lighting of the Cathedral on a pillar of granite next to the Holy door.
