We have recently visited Galicia in a different way, walking the “Camino de Santiago”. Despite the effort that the way means, it is worth to enjoy the very well preserved traditional architecture in the area within an amazing natural environment. It should be pointed the “hórreos” (typical raised granary ) and the use of granite and slate in their construction.

Romanesque architecture is very present at every ecclesiastical building that appears in the route towards Santiago de Compostela where its Cathedral reflects the big cultural influence due to the pilgrimage. It is highly recommended the Cathedral roof visit where there are beautiful views of the city and it can be appreciated the exhaustive restoration works that it is being made in the building.
