Vieira 'when the shell opens, man may rise again'


The scallop (vieira · ‘Coquille Saint Jacques’) is an ancient symbol of the Camino to Santiago. On my trip this summer I saw this sign many times, as well as the pilgrims. I watched them go with respect, each with their own story, which you could read.


There are many stories about the origin of the ancient symbol. The most related is related to the death of Saint James in 44 AD. The story tells how his body was lost in the ocean during a violent storm during the transportation of his remains from Jerusalem to Spain by his disciples. When it washed up on the coast of Galicia, his body was covered with these shells.
