The first reference to the botafumeiro appears in a marginal note of the Codex Calixtinus, written precisely in the dawn of the XV century. It links it to the grand solemnities celebrated in the interior of the basilica.
The botafumeiro is filled with incense and coal and is set in motion by driving a few men who swing it through a pulley system. This runs around the cathedral spreading smoke from the burning purifying and perfuming the interior of the basilica.
The censer is used on special dates during the liturgy such as Easter Sunday, Christmas, Pentecost ...

With this video we made all the way through the cathedral through a GoPro camera on the top of the botafumeiro, accompanied by a great music that accompanies the movement of large censer.
