The scallop shell, or concha de vieira in Spanish, is the symbol of the long pilgrimage of El Camino trail, which wends its way through the Galician north. It was used by travellers completing the long walk to gather water, and as a food bowl, cementing its symbolism as a life giver. The indentations of the shell radiate outwards from a central point, representing the many paths that can be taken from or to a single place. It is a comfort-giver, and a sign of everlasting life, faith, and abundance.
