My last blog was about the main feature of Santiago, the Cathedral. In this blog I will share some other sites of the city.
Just south of the Cathedral is the pretty Praza de Fonseca. The University of Santiago’s Library is here.
A few blocks east of the Cathedral is the City Market.
Around the corner from the market is Praza de Cervantes.
Alameda is a large park on a hill west of the historic town.
It’s an easy walk up the hill for a good view of the Cathedral.
Igrexa de Susana, a small church in the center of the park, was boarded up.
I had to look this woman up….Rosalia Castro was a Spanish romanticist writer and poet.
Walking east of the historic area…
The Museo do Pobo Galego is a museum of Galician heritage and culture. The museum building is a restored monastery with cloisters and church, Igrexa de San Domingos de Bonaval
These are dioramas of Galician life.
This is the lovely, now stark, sanctuary.
A wonderful triple helical staircase.
We could see the Cathedral from our apartment.
Not much to look at from the outside
but a great rooftop location with a kitchen.
Santiago de Compostela was a wonderful stop!
