Vigo to Santiago de Compostela

Tonight we are in Santiago de Compostela the pilgrimage destination. We had a bit of trouble finding the Parador. It is on a square right next to the Cathedral. The only cars that are allowed into the square are the ones going to the hotels and the Parador. The Parador building was built in the early 16th century as a refuge for pilgrims. 

We explored the medieval streets. Duke got a haircut and I sat in a cafe and had a sandwich. 

I thought these different types of lobster were interesting. One is blue and another doesn’t have big claws. We think maybe they explain the different Spanish words we have seen for lobster. 

I also liked this octopus. 

We see a lot of women here wearing beautiful fur coats. 

For dinner we had tapas; squid and jamón. 

And the local almond cake for desert.
