Last day in Santiago de Compostella

A few last pictures before we leave of Maria, Roman and I. Also the crypt containing the remains of the Apostle St. James. 

The memorial flowers and candles are for the victims of the the train wreck that happened here last Thursday killing, I think, 75 people.
