Astorga
The Essential
Already renowned at the time of the Romans, Astorga developed in the Middle Ages thanks to the fairs and activities which entertained pilgrims heading to Santiago de Compostela. They were welcomed in the town's cathedral and nowadays have a museum in their honour, housed in Gaudí's neo-Gothic fantastical palace. In the Plaza Mayor, note the famous clock crowning the town hall, where two costumed "maragatos" (a cross between a Goth and a Moor) appear every hour.
