This narrow street just off the Camino is about a block from the hotel where we stayed during our three-day visit to Santiago de Compostela last May. It’s called the Rua das Animas and it ends around the corner at a little church called the Capela de Animas in Galician. (It’s full name in Spanish is Capilla de la Cofradía General de Ánimas). This photo will be my entry for Leanne’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

From here it’s just a couple of short blocks to the plaza at the top of the hill and then pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago walk down Rua da Acibecheria to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and the end of their pilgrimage across northern Spain.
