Statues! I love statues be they big, small, simple, or weird. There are certainly plenty of them along the Camino Frances and not just in the big cities. Sometimes they just randomly pop up! Pilgrim statues were the most common, that being the nature of the trail. But it was fun when I managed to find one non-Camino related as it says something, in my opinion, about the character of the town/city/village in which it was located. Giant baby heads to hilariously creepy clowns to Kafka-sized ants…it is all there waiting for you in Northern Spain 😛 Oh, and there are a few fountains thrown in for good measure.
Some people had pilgrim related statues in their gardens
