Muchas gracias Zaida y John. Many Canadian doing the Camino and many women solo. So far I am pleased with everything you have organized for me I’m grateful. Thank you for my luggage transfer. I love the Spanish Language, on my way back I’ll get myself into it seriously for now I can express myself minimally. The weather starting to warm up in the Basque Country. Take care and thank you again. Louise

In Santiago! !! Very nice feeling. This is not the end but the beginning of a new chapter in life. The Camino has been much easier than I have expected. Pleasant surprise. Thanks for all the bookings. San Martin is simple, perfect location. This is exactly what a pilgrim should do. Helen

Other than the Cathedral, the other must see in Santiago is the Market of Abastos located in the Old City. Not just any market, the sight, the sound, the atmosphere of the many eateries and bars make the visit all the more rewarding especially after the long ordeal of completing the Camino. The current Market was completed in 1941, it was rebuilt from the original market dating back to 1870. It has always been the Place that the regional farmers, fish mongers, bakers and dairy farmers gather and exhibit their best produce, catch of the season, Galician bake goods, cheese and dairy products. Over the years the Market has grown from being mainly a Farmers Market to become a good place for fine eateries especially for fresh catch of the Day seafood, farm raised meat, poultry and fine wine from the regions Pre roman wine producing wineries. The distinctive feature of the Market is that you can select and purchase fresh seafood , meat or produce and take it to the many restaurants and bars on the premises or close by and they will prepare and cook it for you. The Market is open Monday to Saturday from 0700 to 1500 hrs. Thursdays and Saturdays are considered the best time to visit as those are the days that fresh deliveries are arriving and especially on Saturdays, the Market generally seemed livelier.

AT CREATIVE TRAVEL WE KNOW SPAIN AND WE KNOW THE CAMINO
Established since 1983, we remain the only Spanish themed agency in Vancouver specializing in the promotion of tourism, the art, the culture and the many splendors of Spain.
The city of La Coruña occupies a particularly contorted corner of the Galician coast. The centre sits on an isthmus straddled by the port on its southeast side and the main ocean beaches on the northwest. An irregularly shaped peninsula extends 2km north out to the city’s World Heritage-listed Roman lighthouse, the Torre de Hércules. The Paseo Marítimo, a wonderful 13km walkway and bike path, runs all the way from port, around the peninsula, along the ocean beaches and on out to the west.
