Meet Neil and Chris

I first noticed the tiny cemetery and then these two men sitting in the shade in the porch of what first looked like a tiny ancient church. I asked if the church was open and Neil said I could come down and look inside.

Neil, from South Africa, is currently working on the Camino. More specifically he’s involved in the restoration of St Lucretia’s, which was a C13th abbey. He told me some of the church’s history and pointed out the unique original altar fresco which depicted nautilus shells (symbolising the spiral of life) and said it symbolised was a gateway to heaven!

Chris is a pilgrim from Buffalo NY. He’s also a blogger.
