7/20.- Santiago de Compostela, Town Street
The name of Compostela doesnt come from the words "Campus Stellae" (Star field), as thought some time ago, but from the Latin word "Compositum" (Cemetery).
The city was attacked by the Normands (954-997) and destroyed by al-Mansur, who respected the Apostolic tomb. In the 10th century Diego Pelaez, the first bishop, began the Cathedral construction. Diego Gelmires continued his work one century after.
