Museo do Pobo Galego

Friday, September 22nd 2006

Until Dave moved to Galicia, I can't honestly say that I knew that the region had its own language. Even though Franco was from here, he still rescinded the region's autonomy and discouraged use of the language. We went to the Museo de Pobo Galego and learned more about these things. The museum building used to be a nunnery, and the nun's dormitories were reached via triple spiral staircases, allegedly to confuse rogue Galicians trying to visit the nuns during the night.
