Train Accident in Santiago de Compostela

Jump to last reply

Yesterday evening an Alvia train coming from Madrid derailed when it was arriving to Santiago. There are at least 77 deaths and most of the people travelling have been injured.

Today is Santiago´s day, the big festival for people from Galicia and pilgrims alike. All the festivities have been cancelled, beginning with yesterday´s "burning of the Obradoiro".

It is a most terrifying feeling ...
