If you have your own car, a public parking garage is just 2 minutes from the house under the Plaza de Galicia. ************************************************************* Esta hermosa casa de piedra se encuentra justo en el centro histórico de Santiago de Compostela, en una calle peatonal a dos pasos de la famosa Catedral de Santiago.
