Took the shuttle in the the city center. The streets were clean and a very nice pedestrian mall with nice shops and restaurants.

Vigo was a typical fishing port. I took the ship tour to Santiago de Compostela since I had walked the pilgrimage in 2007. The ride up the coast to Santiago was beautiful very green with many inlets. Santiago is a medieval city with small streets and a beautiful cathedral.
