“I decided to also be a guide because I love Galicia and Santiago de Compostela is an absolutely exciting city with many secret places and of the most curious tales to be told. But the main reason was the lack of people telling the History and stories of this City in a fun and entertaining way. It certainly is a pleasure to perceive the gratitude and recognition that people give you for a job done with enthusiasm and passion.
My favorite place in Santiago de Comostela is, without a doubt, the entire Bonaval Park complex. In addition to the museums of the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáeno (CGAC), the Museo do Pobo Galego and the Panteón de los Gallego Ilustres (with our beloved Rosalía), the park at the back is a magical place. It was built over what were the old halls and rooms of Dominican monks’ dependencies and the old city’s cemetery. Its atmosphere has nothing to do with the City’s hustle and bustle despite it being in its very center. I think that there is no better exponent of the curious relationship that we Galicians have with spirits and death”.
