On Friday we planned to go to the Palacio de Oca, near Santiago de la Compostela and then on to Santiago itself.

The Palacio or Pazo of Oca was impressive...

Particular attention is paid to the gardens and the orchard, with extensive channelling provided for irrigation...

Here are some of the implements used in the past...

Santiago de Compostela.

This is a busy working town, and this was very evident as we drove through it to get the the historic centre. There was lots of traffic and lots of people on the go.

The casco antiguo around the cathedral and the Praza das Praterías and Praza do Obradoiro was very busy.

The narrow streets that surround the plazas reminded me a lots of those in the casco histórico of Málaga.

The sheer height of the cathedral towers and rurrounding buildings become evidents as you approach...





Here, pilgrims queue to obtain their certificates...
