Santiago

You can hear sung the first verse of the "Annua Gaudia," a hymn traditionally associated with today (the Feast of St. James the Greater), here.

Traditionally the day is celebrated in England by eating oysters; in France by eating scallops. Spanish Catholics celebrate by going crazy, because Santiago is their patron saint.

Take a virtual tour of Santiago de Campostela here.
