Santiago is a city of winding streets and tiny plazas, perfect for quiet contemplation and aimless wandering. Whilst we did visit the Cathedral, our pilgrimage followed less of a religious path as we sought out Albariño wines and creamy Galician cheeses in the tapas bars of the old town.

If you're tired of the weak euro eating into your food budget, stop into Casa Manolo for a "how'd they do that?" meal at a "how can they charge that little?" price.
