Hello,

Good luck doing the Camino, for the best advice and information on planning your trip I would go to www.santiago-today.com, they have a very friendly forum and you will be able to ask some experienced pilgrims your questions.

A very good hotel in Santiago that is very reasonably priced, central and comfortable is Hotel Mapoula http://www.mapoula.com.

Best wishes

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

Sanxexo

by b1bob

We went to another beach down the road in Sanxexo. The beach was nice, the water was not as cold, there were no mosquitoes, but the water was polluted. We stayed there getting intermittent refreshments like soft drinks and raspberry sherbet. We stayed clear until 8.00. Natalia had to be home by a certain time for some reason.

Food market

by SirRichard

The food market, in the south, near the University, is a good place to wander around if tou have some spare time. Apart from the building itself, built up in grey stone, it is interesting to see the wide variety of seafood, and the local peasants selling their goods right there on the floor.

TAPAS

by xanaia about SAN CLEMENTE

The best tapas at the cheapest price are served at this place. If you order a coke, you get free tortilla, empanada, olives and ensaladilla... for the only price of 1.30 euros. Isn't that cheap??? I go there everytime I want to go for TAPAS, especilly on Sundays before lunch.

Galician Folk Museum- Museo do Pobo Galego

by suvanki

This museum is well worth a visit, for an insight into Galician culture.

Opened in October 1977, in the old monastery building of San Domingos de Bonavel, whos' foundations date back to 1219. The museum rooms encircle the 17th Century cloisters.

One of the most impressive sights in the museum is the triple spiral staircase, designed by Domingo de Andrade to connect the cloister and the floors of the museum. It is attached to only one wall, and you can see views over the city from a bay window near the top. I'm afraid that I didn't get to see this view, as I was directed back into one of the exhibition rooms. The staircase is quite impressive though - a bit like an optical illusion!

Rooms have exhibits of aspects of Galician life. The Sea, Agriculture, Crafts, Music, Clothing, Traditions, Occupations, Architecture and Environment.

I particularly enjoyed learning about the traditional way of life that was ruled by the seasons, and how the working day was organised. There were laminated information cards (Some in English) in this particular room, which staff were pleased to photo copy on request.

It is also possible to look around the Gothic church, which from the 13th century has undergone many restorations. In this church are buried some of Gallicias noteable citizens.
These include the poetress Rosalia de Castro, Alfred Branas (Regionalist politician) Francisco Asorey (Sculptor) Ramon Cabanillos (Poet) Domingo Fontan (Geographer) and Alfons R Castelao, who was one of the fathers of Galician nationalism. I'm afraid that I didn't have time to look around the church, but I viewed it from one of the rooms above, that opens onto the church.

Admission is free - This is a non profit making institution - There is a donations box near the reception

Bags are left at reception- the curator will give you a ticket and number tag to collect your belongings at the end.

Photography is allowed in some rooms.

Closed Mondays
Tues to Sat open 10.00 - 14.00 and 16.00-20.00
Sun and hols 11.00 - 14.00

Colegiata de Sar

by xanaia

The Colegiata de Sar, is a Romanesque church of the 12th century on the banks of the River Sar. The picturesque thing of this church is that no two columns lean parallel; they are all askew. Apparently, when the church was built it was placed on soft soil. Over the years the building began to settle, in differing amounts at different places. It got so bad that by the early 1700s a decision had to be made: attempt to save the building or to tear it down. Fortunately for us, people chose to save it. The exterior walls were buttressed, and the building stands today to illustrate that indeed columns can lean that far without falling and arches can deform that much without failing. So, this churck is referred to as the "falling down church".

This church has a museum in the inside and the admission ticket costs 0.60€.. It was founded in 1975.
Opening hours:
Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 1 pm and 4 pm to 7 pm. Closed on Sundays.
