Santiago de Compostella

Public | Dutch

Scallops are the symbol of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. The reason would come from the following story. When the body of St. James of Jerusalem was taken to Galicia, a sailor fell out of the boat in front of Galicia. However, he was miraculously saved. The waves took him up, his body completely covered with shells.
