What's Santiago de Compostela Like?

The cathedral and the main square are at the heart of an atmospheric old town with arcaded, flagstoned streets lined with colorful cafes, bars and restaurants. The architectural splendor of the cathedral is a highlight but the city has no shortage of medieval churches on a rather more modest scale. Part of Santiago's charm comes from its green spaces. The Alameda overlooks the old town and offers a funfair in the summer. The Bonaval Park is a tranquil escape behind the sophisticated modern building that houses the contemporary art gallery. The bustling market offers the finest fruits and vegetables brought in from the Galician fields and the latest catch sold on the fish stalls. It's the best place to find seasonal cherries, sweet green peppers and local wine in unlabelled bottles. Santiago de Compostela hotels offer an ideal base for exploring this impressive destination.
