Largest Incensor ever; All Day Santiago de Compostela
by Steve Ray on September 11, 2021
This has to be the world’s largest incensor which is called the “ botafumerio” which takes eight men to operate. In front of the altar it swings high up to the ceiling and then it comes back down “swoosh” swinging back up to the ceiling on the other side. It is always quite a sight to see.
After Mass in the cathedral, we toured the city of Santiago de Compostela and the cathedral and had the afternoon free to enjoy the fresh seafood, all the shops and history and culture.
We watched many hiking and biking pilgrims arriving on the El Camino. Some of our people walked a portion of the El Camino!
