26 October Querini reached the port of Muros.
Before continuing his voyage, he decided to make a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela accompanied by some crew members.

From Pietro Querini’s diary (P.Nelli, 2007): The unfavourable winds kept us at sea, but we still reached the port of Muros on 26 October. Together with thirteen other men, I visited the church of St James (Santiago de Compostela)”
