Travel in Spain, Santiago do Compostela

Two days and nights in  is not long enough, but all the time I had and so this post is a few of the sights as we wandered about the streets, starting with an unusually clear sky on the morning we left!

There are lots of butterwalks, or colonnaded walks, in Santiago which enable you to walk about in the seemingly constant downpours of rain. This colonnade is on the Praza Praterias, near the Cathedral.

Churches, monasteries, and convents are everywhere and I would have loved to see more.

At night the streets were very atmospheric.

 And then it was time to move on.
