such a darling little apartment right on Rua Nova, which appears to be a hot spot, come morning, come night. The apartment had everything we needed. A complete kitchen (no dishwasher, but we didn't need one), including a washing machine and drying rack. We were surprised that our laundry dried so quickly, because it was rainy and cool. However, it dried quite nicely. The living/bedroom combo worked out fine, because it was just the two of us. Everything was very nice. We had a view of the street from the living area. The street was delightful. We felt like we were living in Santiago. Restaurants/Bars all along the street, as well as delightful little boutiques. We were walking distance to all of Old Town and the new area, as well. Parks, etc., were everywhere. The biggest kuddo was the distance to the Cathedral. An easy walk, which we did daily. Restaurants galore, within an easy walk. We even saw a parade on Rua Nova...The Feast of Corpus Christi came from the Cathedral right down the street. We were just ready to come in and found ourselves standing watching the parade go by. We felt like we were Santiaogans.
Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. We will recommend it to anyone we know who is coming to Santiago. My husband walked 500 miles on the Camino and I met him there. For those so inclined, the Camino is a blessing...every single mile. For those not, Santiago is a blessing as well. The energy of the millions of pilgrims who have walked those stone streets for over one thousand years echoes to you as you walk each step.
