Gallizien is the place. It’s a small village in Carinthia with a church devoted to St. Jakob, or as the say in Spain, Santiago. This small village was on one of the countless pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostella, in medieval times a pilgrim destination second only to Rome. Santiago is located in Galicia, and that’s how this Carinthian village got its name.

The Song of the Day is “Pilgrimage” by Nine Inch Nails. Hear it on YouTube.
