|Cathedral seen from my Hostel|
La Alameda or Rosaleda park you will see a statue of two old ladies, known as Las dos Marías, the two Marys. Their real names were Maruxa and Corelia. They were two real ladies from Santiago. It is believe that they may have lost their mind during the Spanish Civil War. They believed to still be young ladies themselves and will parade the city streets and mainly the Rosaleda park attired with colorful outfits and loads of make up, talking and flirting with young university students. It is also said that they used to be abrupt with girls, probably as they felt threatened by their beauty. In memory of this two picturesque and irreplaceable characters of Santiago de Compostela they put a statue of them in the park.
