Fodor's Review

The best way to spend your time in Santiago de Compostela is to simply to walk around the casco antiguo, losing yourself in its maze of stone-paved narrow streets and little plazas. The streets hold many old pazos (manor houses), convents, and churches. The most beautiful pedestrian thoroughfares are Rúa do Vilar, Rúa do Franco, and Rúa Nova—portions of which are covered by arcaded walkways called soportales, designed to keep walkers out of the rain.
