This is the location that the Romans used to call Finis Terrae, or ‘end of the world’, and it was to here that the Apostle James travelled to preach and convert people to Christianity (St James translated into Spanish is Santiago). In the 9th Century, a hermit discovered the tomb of St James in a forest and pilgrims have been visiting Santiago ever since. News of this find spread throughout Europe; the King of Galicia and Asturias visited to pay his respects and a cathedral was erected by Alfonso IX at the site of the discovery. Pilgrims increased in numbers throughout the Middle Ages, travelling along the now famous Camino de Santiago (or Pilgrim Way) and the cathedral was ultimately extended to accommodate growing popularity.
