Shells are the symbol of the walk to Santiago. In ye olden days pilgrims used to pick up a shell from the Galician coast and bring it back with them. However in modern times virtually noone walks back home so most people have a shell all the way with them although you do get some irritating people saying 'you shouldn't carry it til the way back....'
Anyway there are all kinds of shells everywhere, on buildings, signs, built into things, pointing out the route and here is a selection of them!
