Today I took the bus to Padron. Padron is a town with great religious and historical significance. There are churches, museums, and a small but lovely botanical garden. There is a large open-air market but it was a holiday the day I was there and not open. The Hotel Pazo de Lestrove was actually in Dodro so I took a taxi although if I had known where it was I could have walked. Once checked in, to the newer side of the hotel which was ok, I walked back to Padron to sightsee. The taxi driver was surprised to see me again but the problem was that I just did not have a local map until I actually arrived and was never quite sure where to go. Today was another hot day as I left the hotel to walk back to Padron on the Rua do Carme, turning right onto the bridge over the Rio Sar that takes you to the church of Santiago Apostle in the center of Padron. Just walk a little further to your left to find a maze of shops, restaurants, and bars or walk/sit by the river down a beautiful avenue.
