Even the cows have long horns

The local Galician Cachena breed can still be spotted on the Camino, with their characteristic long horns and black muzzles.

However, on the Camino, you will most likely see more Holsteins (your typical black and white Dutch breed), and Galician Blondes (yes, they really are called that), which are the same color as Cachenas, but bigger and with short horns.

Santiago Sighting in Madrid!

Perhaps next time you are in Madrid and decide to spend some time in the Prado Museum, you may feel inclined to pay homage to the saint and do a tour of portraits of Santiago.

Here is a list of portraits of Santiago that can be found in the Prado collection (although not always on display as the museum rotates paintings).

Portraits of Santiago in the Prado

1. Santiago el Mayor by an anonymous artist. Circa 1500. In full gear, he’s got the hat, the staff, the butternut squash flask, the shell and he is holding what appears to be a jet stone rosary.

2. Santiago Peregrino by Juan de Flandes. 1507. He’s wearing a warmer hat, but still is easily identified by his staff and shell. The artist Juan de Flandes was a royal court painter of Isabel la Católica.

3. Santiago by El Greco. 1608. This mystical Santiago without any of the usual attributes is Santiago because El Greco said it was.

4. Santiago el Mayor by Ribera. 1630. This pensive Santiago is easily identified by the shell and the staff.

5. El Apóstol Santiago by Murillo. 1655. Red cloaks must have been the norm as Murillo’s robust Santiago also has one.

6. Santiago el Mayor by Rubens. 1610. Although he doesn’t have a shell, we know it’s Santiago because of the staff.
