One of the most beautiful cities in Spain. With all the charm of the celtic culture, including bagpipes, lots of rain and extremely good (and cheap) seafood! Don't forget the cathedral!
Santiago de Compostela, world's heritage town, destination of the old pilgrimage way to Sat James's tomb (Camino de Santiago, is the capital of Galicia. 1.5 hours drive from Cedeira
You don't have to be religious to appreciate santiago de Compostela, the end of the Way of St John pilgrim trail. It's a really great short visit - and being in Galicia the seafood tapas is great. Stay in the grand parador opposite the big cathedral (it's surprisingly not that expensive) and you'll be right in the middle of things. Take a walk on a bit of the Way - it's very pretty - and if you can do up on to the cathedral roof (ask if they are doing a tour at the info desk) as it's a lovely experience.
Santiago de Compostela is the capital of Galicia, Spain. The city's Cathedral is the destination today, as it has been throughout history, of the important 9th century medieval pilgrimage route, the Way of St. James. In 1985 the city's Old Town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gayle and I attended a Pilgrim's Mass at the Cathedral, walked around the various surrounding Sites, stayed at the nearby Parador, and otherwise had a great time during our short stay. It's a very impressive and humbling place.
