What's Santiago De Compostela Like?

The cathedral remains the hub of the old town in Santiago De Compostela and it's an impressive sight, especially when they swing the huge incense container, the botafumeiro, above the heads of the pilgrims. The stone-flagged streets of the centre have numerous impressive churches and medieval buildings to explore, notably the monastery of San Martin Pinario and the convent of San Francisco. Visitors interested in rural Galician culture should visit the Pobo Gallego museum on Rua de Valle Inclan with its social history, fishing industry and agriculture collections. Right opposite is the contemporary art museum with interesting and innovative Spanish and international exhibitions. The warren of streets in the old town hosts a variety of welcoming bars and restaurants, many specialising in seafood, the Galician signature dish of octopus and local albarino white wine. The market is a highlight, showcasing a vast range of fish alongside the fresh produce from the Galician countryside.
