Mr Monkey stood in front of the Hotel de Ville, watching as a band of bagpipers and drummers went past. Then the small parade finished with a group of men wearing scallop shell pilgrim's badges carrying a statue of St James of Compostela on their shoulders.
You can read about St James and the great tradition of pilgrimages to Compestela at the Confraternity of Saint James website.
