My favourite city is Santiago de Compostela.

El siguiente texto es una redacción para la asignatura de Inglés. Se admiten comentarios y mejoras.

Santiago de Compostela (also Saint James of Compostela) is the capital of the autonomous community of Galician. Not just because I was born there. Its older part (around the cathedral), its streets and houses are made of stone, many centuries ago. I love it. It's green and cute and pretty and quiet. Go out at night and see that there's even more life than during the day. I remember the school in Santiago, because it has beautiful green trees and grass and gardens with blooming flowers.

Santiago is UNESCO heritage, pilgrimage destination, cultural capital and example of historical, urban and environmental regeneration. Santiago de Compostela has a rich history that is reflected in its many churches, monasteries, palaces, plazas, museums, etc. The city has a university tradition (one of the oldest universities in Spain) with innovative business initiatives and with technological and scientific resources.

Close by are mountains, Atlantic beaches, beautiful outdoor scenery, and a variety of quaint villages and towns. Santiago de Compostela has a population of over 120,000 people.

The most famous is the old quarter and of course the Cathedral. The cathedral is the final destination for thousands of Christian pilgrims who walk the "Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago)".

Located 30 km from the coast, Santiago de Compostela is Galicia’s genuine international holiday destination and is the region's capital with the parliament (or "Xunta") of Galician using the city as its home. Regional television and media organizations are also based in Santiago.

There is no limit to what you can see and do in Santiago.

To be concluded. – Santiago is monumental, great food, nice locals, and beautiful countryside. It’s a well hidden secret in Spain. This city is so serene, peaceful, beautiful, and fabulous.
