  • On the tour passed through before. It is a monastery. It was a story made homemade cookies two nuns and a doorbell that will sell. Free time panelists, unfortunately I have no sense of direction, but other people and the two were bought. Almond cookie seems to be around 6 euros.

  • Sit awhile in San Pelayo, just observe it, it is a pleasure. Its altarpieces Golden, full of pictures, Angel sharks, and biblical scenes carved in wood and polychrome in a Baroque environment gold leaf are essential to contemplation.

Where to stay in Santiago de Compostela

Lodging in the city's old district is the most scenic option. Some hotels even offer rooms in renovated historical buildings near the cathedral. Consider a stay in Monte do Gozo, a small town just outside the city that offers 2,000 beds to weary pilgrims.
