In this and the following pieces, the various pilgrim badges and their use on clothing are notable; the badges are seen attached to pilgrims’ garments and to money-bags that they carry as well. Each emblem attested public faith in a particular pilgrimage: the Romero went to Rome, and so wore the pontificial keys symbolizing the Holy See; the Jacobeo went to Santiago de Compostela, and so displayed the cockle-shell associated with that Saint; the Palmero, to Jerusalem, showing a reflection of the palms which greeted Jesus upon his arrival for Passover – all part of a system of images that were reproduced also in more modest sanctuaries, like the nearby one of Santa María of Montserrat.
