Excerpt from Spanish Galicia
These notes on Galicia are intended to convey some idea of the charm and interest of a country still too little known to travellers. They are the result of a summer spent in the north-western corner of the Peninsula, and cannot hope to be complete, but they cover a wider ground than has hitherto been attempted by writers, who have usually con fined themselves to one or two cities or districts famous places which will here scarcely receive more attention than the delightful unknown towns, villages and scenery of the remoter parts. The architecture, sculpture, language, literature, botany, archmology, ethnology in this beautiful region call aloud for the specialist, who in each of these subjects will here find rich material for study, while the sports man may spend many a happy day among these streams and hills.
