Vegetarians - help, please!

by GreyNomadWirral

We are visiting Santiago de C in mid September for a few days. We have travelled through Spain quite extensively and know that veggie food can be tricky to come by (we usually self-cater, but this time we are in a hotel for 4 days). We love Italian food, but any suggestions for reasonably priced places to eat would be very much appreciated. We do eat dairy produce and eggs, just no meat or fish products of any kind. Thanks in anticipation!

This is what I have found searching the internet. I have not sampled any of those personally.

Be where the Paradore is very expensive. Because it is a Paradore.

There is a pizza restaurant in (I think) Rua do Franco. It is over priced and not very good so I would suggest you stay away from it.

Hi! There is a very good daily market in Santiago de Compostelo, where you could stock up on salad stuff, fruit, nuts etc. I'm afraid that SDC and Galicia are famed for their fish and meat dishes,even their version of Caldo Verde-Galdo Gallego - a soup/ broth of cabbage (or sprouts tops)or turnip and potato, often contains some meat pieces.

Some things to look for are pimientos de Padron -green peppers fried with garlic and empaladoes- pastries with various fillings. Cheeses such as Tetillo, Arzua-Ullua, Cebreiro and Sansimon.

There are supermarkets dotted around that may be useful to you.
A lot of the restaurants near the Cathedral have their menus outside, many with translations into english, french and german, so you can see what is offer.

Hope you have a great trip!
Best Wishes,
Sue x

Many thanks for the suggestions, which we are following up. It'll probably be a case of menu-checking when we arrive! Thanks again, and we'll post any successful finds (or otherwise).

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

La Lanzada

by b1bob

We went to a beach called La Lanzada with Natalia, a very small (then) 18-year old girl. She is a sweet lady who means well, but she whines a lot and chimes in when others are in the midst of a sentence. The water was so cold I wondered when the ice truck left. I couldn't stay in that frigid water but a nanosecond. When I got my feet out of that cold North Atlantic water, Fernando had trouble understanding why I couldn't get used to it. It is really quite simple. I am a Southerner used to warm water. If there is any one weakness the Southern people have, it is lack of tolerance of the cold. I laid out in the sun and got a nice tan without looking like I was roasted on the devil's own spit. We got tired of La Lanzada because there were too many mosquitoes.

Don't forget to leave enough time to relax !!!

by into-thin-air

When walking the Camino de Santiago, especially towards the end of the walk as you approach Santiago de Compostela, Some people fall into the trap of turning the walk into a Route-March !! The reason for this is the shortage of beds as you approach your goal -- I have seen some Pilgrims getting up at 04.00 in the morning to start their daily walk JUST to ensure that they have a bed that night !! But think of All that Beautiful Scenery you miss by walking in the Dark -- My advice is to Relax a little as things usually work out ok in the end !!!!!!

Cafe Off the tourist route.

by suvanki about Cafe Krystal

This cafe was on the corner of the street where I was staying. It's just off the tourist trail, so more a locals place. I called in here for a hot chocolate and churros.

To be continued..... Good Chocolate and fresh churros, and a nice friendly atmosphere.

Puerta Santa (The Holy Door)

by xanaia

The Holy Door was opened up in Plaza de la Quintana by perforating the Romanesque wall in order to create a direct access from the Monastery of San Paio. It is framed by a stone tableau containing a baroque statue of St. James, bordered by statues of his disciples Athanasius and Theodore. This door is only opened during holy years. The wall blocking the door is demolished on December 31st of the year before the beginning of a holy year.

Xelmirez Palace

by micas_pt

The Xelmirez Palace is attached to the Cathedral. It was built between the 12th and 13th centuries, by request of Bishop Xelmirez in order to replace the former Bishop's residence. It was later refurbished, and it is nowadays considered to be one of the finest examples of its style.

It is very simple seen from the outside but inside there are some majestic rooms such as the Weapons Parlor and the Banquets Parlor, as well as an interesting Medieval kitchen.
