    The Galician language is not a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese. Galician is and older language than Castilian, and coexisted with Portuguese in a single language, called Galician-portuguese. It was one of the most important languages during the Middle Ages, and the two separated with the creation of the Portuguese independent counties.

    Galician is not a mix of Spanish and Portuguese, portuñol is that. Galician is actually older than Portuguese and its origin is the vulgar latin that was spoken in Galicia before Castilian became the language of the peninsula.

    That gigantic censer looks like the deacons are just having a bit of fun in the church, but I suspect it must have been created to mask the smell of all those sweaty pilgrims.

    Hello I'm a lunguist from Colombia and I can tell you that Galician is most certainly NOT a mixture of Portuguese and Castilian. Rather it is a local variant of Ibero-Romance from which Portuguese actually Originated! After independence from Spain, Portuguese evolved separately from Galician, while Galician absorbed many Castillian influences. Nonetheless it has always been and remains quite distinct from both Portuguese and Castillian and sounds more like Italian than either of the two.

    Eu conheci a cidade de SANTIAGO de  Compostela foi sempre um sonho meu adorei a igreja muito linda , e a cheio o idioma galego muito claro a pronuncia creio que para os brasileiros é mais inteligível que o o português carregado com o sotaque tipico de Portugal

    O Galego é unha evolución linguística de 3000 anos . E logo non sabes que presenta un vocabulário mixto de palavras latinas + palavras pré-romanicas , celtas . + o português é considerado unha evolución linguística do galego
