La Coruna or Santiago or both?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Northern Spain for June 2018 for 14 days. I am certain that the first 6 days will be spent in San Sebastian and the last 5 days in La Coruna or Santiago de Compostela. Not sure yet about the 3 days in the middle (started planning for Bilbao & now I am not as sure).
Here is my dilemma: I have favored La Coruna for location (seaside/beaches), food, and culture (including its big June 24th celebrations), but want to visit SdC. However, the more I read, the more I see people praising SdC as a place to stay for its food, culture (architecture/pilgrims/etc), and nightlife.
Though it is not a seaside location.
I'd like thoughts on whether one city or the other should be the base for Galician travel, or should I be considering a split between the two, or should I consider something else altogether.
Seaside is good, beaches are not mandatory.
