Maurice Greer’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 27 May 2009

Location: Santiago de Compostella, Spain

MapToday we walked back into the old town and toured the cathedral, much nicer on the inside than on the outside. There is a legend that St James travelled to the Iberian Peninsula and preached there and his remains are inside the cathedral. Then we drove south-west to the coast at Pontevedra and on to Sanxenxo, which had a lovely sandy beach and where we walked the promenade. We then drove on to O Grove and the Isla de la Toka, a very expensive golfing neighbourhood. In the evening we drove back to the hotel to watch the EUFA final on TV, Barcelona vs. Manchester United……Barca won 2 – 0.
