I always enjoy visiting Santiago de Compostela. The old part of town is particularly charming, with the caveat that parking is often a problem.
It is the destination of all those pilgrims, who are understandably delighted to finally arrive. There are lots of monumental structures clustered in the old area.
And there is, of course, the Cathedral. The scale, both inside and outside, is hard to convey, so I took some shots of some of the details.
While we were there someone was playing what sounded like Bach on this enormous organ. I thought that must be quite something, to have an instrument like this to play in a space designed for it. What a thrill for the organist.
In addition to the monuments, there are lots of little side streets, squares and nooks and crannies to explore as well. We found this charming tavern with a terraza placed outside to have a beer.
And we happened across the market with the excellent produce displayed.
They were closing up because it was lunch time, so we went in search of a restaurant. But it soon started to rain and get chilly, so after lunch we said goodbye to the intresting shops and intriguing side streets and headed back for La Coruña.
