|Old homes with galerías|
|In the old town|
My leap of faith paid off, as these two kind betanceiros dropped me off in the central plaza and were fun to chat with for a couple of minutes as we circled around what were once the old town walls. In short, a lovely introduction to a lovely town.
An outstanding old town
|The main square|
|Colorful back patios|
Gorgeous Gothic churches
|Stained wooden ceilings, Church of San Francisco|
|Holy Week preparations, Church of Santiago|
The Church of Santa María do Azogue sports a stark west façade interrupted by a striking rose window that adds a bit of French charm to what was once the town’s market square only a century ago.

The quirky Parque do Pasatempo park
|Ducks at the park|
One half of it consists of a typical city park: wooded meadows, creeks, and ponds, with benches and ducks to keep you occupied.
|Inside the grotto|
|A small dinner…or a big tapa?|
|Time to dig in!|
