Travelling Spain through photos
I love this traditional Spanish portico in the old section of A Coruna:
It’s in Galicia, a region in northern Spain that is noted for its sea food and the supposed burial place of Saint James in Santiaga. Historically, Galicia was a very wealthy area of Spain, as the heavily-fortified port in Ferrol made it a highly-desirable place to live for royalty and nobility.
Now, however, the economic crisis in Spain and through Europe means many people struggle to survive and numerous buildings sit empty. Yet, in this old section of A Coruna, the proud heritage and beauty of Spain and the Spanish people is very evident.
