The city is stunning. On the one hand you see everyday life, contrasted by an ancient city. While walking, the different eras can easily be traced with countless historical buildings lurking behind the next corner.

Having completed the camino walk it was the highlight of the journey to visit the historic town of Santiago de Compostela. We found navigation relatively easy and enjoyed the scenic parts such as the cathedral and the museum of pilgrimage.
