is part of the rich heritage of the capital Galicia. I requested a tour on the roofs of the Cathedral, which has fantastic views towards the area of The Alameda. Also, took the opportunity to walk around the park. From a bank, sitting, you can see the view from the cathedral that looms. The grove is extraordinary.

Weekends were free. So I grabbed my train to go to major cities. I enjoyed as the most. Yo llegué a Santiago on a Saturday 15 hours. Quickly, I asked where was the old. Then I saw the center and the first thing I did was enter the cathedral and reserve a place for the visit to the roof of the same the next day Sunday. And it spent the night in Compostela. I spent the night in a hostel and was very intense day Sunday. In the morning I was at the park The Alameda, and in the afternoon I started to learn from history Compostela mentioned going to the tour date on the top of the cathedral building.
