According to the Compostelas we received in Santiago, the official distance for the Camino Primitivo from Oviedo is 315 km.
We visited the Cathedral but took no photos because of restoration work taking place to the interior. (Photos of the interior of the cathedral on shown in our 2015 blog.) The restoration is expected to be completed ahead of the holy year, 2021. Until then, the traditional Pilgrim Mass will take place at the nearby San Francisco Church at noon every day.
A drumming performance (part of the BateBatukeXI Festival) given at the plaza behind the Cathedral drew a large crowd. There must have been at least 150 drummers and what a great show they put on! There was a lot of gyrating going on among the drummers and the audience.
The name of the Plaza del Obradoiro in front of the Cathedral is said to come from “Obradoiro de Oro” (work of gold).
