This is part of the decoration around the door of the Basilica of St James in Prague. You can recognize James by the shells on his cape and water gourd at his waist. This is where I’ll begin my Camino, or as the Czech say, Savtojakubská Cesto in a few days. There has been a church in Prague dedicated to St James since the 1200s. That church burnt down in 1689. (The recent fire in Paris was far from an anomaly. What was modern about it was that Norte Dame is repairable after the fire.) The “new” church here in Prague was built in the early 1700s, very Baroque.
