About Northern Spain
Lush, green meadows, snow-capped mountains, and verdant river valleys set Northern Spain apart from the rest of the country. Its oceanic climate attracts vacationers from other parts of Spain in the summer months who enjoy the cooler weather. Galicia, originally settled by Celts, has it's own unique language and its economy depends heavily on fishing. Santiago de Compostela, the capital of Galicia and the third holiest city in Christendom, is a beautifully preserved medieval cathedral town. The Basque Autonomous Community - another ethnically unique region of Northern Spain boasts seaside resorts, spectacular mountain vistas, medieval cathedrals, and extraordinary 20th century architecture.
