We think the trip is about more than just Santiago de Compostela so we will take our time during the day and enjoy all that is around us. There may be time for sightseeing around our destinations in the late afternoon/evenings, with so many old castles and beautiful churches to look at, it will just enhance the experience of the trip, travel to these sites will be included but entrances fee's may be payable.
