There is an unwritten maxim that says that he is not basking but walk the last 100 miles of the Camino de Santiago. Today, can dive by Internet, catch a flight directly reaching the Parador de los Reyes Catolicos, located right in the plaza de la catedral, and done with the prized shell without having to suffer the penalties of the adventure to foot. Many times, we do virtual tours or try to visit a site just for the mere fact of taking a picture and tell after that we’ve been in it, as if we were to fill a large world map with pins. Santiago de Compostela supports undaunted the incessant flow of tourists and no question. Welcomes everyone in the plaza del Obradoiro and beyond each with their needs. This square is by some nee Catalan because there has been exploited everything.
There we have the Cathedral, the hostal-parador of the Catholic monarchs, the town hall building and the Chancellor of the University. So serious because the masons who worked there (why is called Obradoiro) decided to that in future should concentrate everything in a same place to not give more laps. Craxo error, apart from the plaza, Santiago is a city to be missed guided by the star of Compos Stela (star in the sky). According to the legend that a hermit, back in the 9th century, he discovered the relics of the Apostle after following the trail of light from a star Santiago de Compostela. But not all the legacy of the Apostle is gentleness and mercy. Moved here from Palestinian lands, where had been martyred after returning from his unsuccessful mission in the peninsula, he also spent to be a symbol of the fight against the Muslims at the time of the reconquest. The same Apostle Santiago was also Santiago Matamoros and was a reference to Christians who need some leader in his fight against the infidels.
