The Códice Calixtino a literary jewel from the 12th century which disappeared a year ago from the Santiago Cathedral was found at 2,40pm on Wednesday afternoon.

The National Police had earlier detained an ex-worker at Santiago Cathedral, Manuel Fernández Castañeiras, as the alleged thief of the Códice Calixtino, which disappeared a year ago from the cathedral. The Códice has been safeguarded in a safe in the Cathedral archive for the past 800 years, and is considered to be the first guide for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago.

The Códice was found in a rubbish bag in the garage of Manuel’s home, in a cardboard box. Witnesses report that the police also found four books from the cathedral and a silver tray.
