|The Portico of the Glory in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, Jenaro Perez Villamil|
I first saw this painting at an exhibit called The Heart of Spain in Alexandria, LA, in 2003. Even before I saw the painting, I had been wanting to see the real thing. I am posting it today to commemorate the arrival at the Cathedral of a commenter who has been known variously as Grumphy, Grumpy, Grumpy in Muncillas de los Mucas, Grumpy in Burgos with tendonitis but hoping to move out tomorrow, and various other names. In case you haven't figured out what she has been doing, she has been spending the last month walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, praying a lot of rosaries, and occasionally commenting here. She prayed for me when I was having trouble with my eyes, for which I am very grateful. And I'm very happy for her today.
By the way, the link I posted was to a Wikipedia article because the others that came up seem to be selling tours, but I'm sure there are better websites if you look around.
