In northern Spain, the beautiful green countryside with ancient Celtic hillforts, the famous Camino de Santiago de Compostella and the exotic Celtic music featuring Galicia's dynamic bagpiper, Carlos Nunez, (the 7th Chieftain) & Asturias's wonderful group Llan de Cubel. In France, Brittany's Celtic music and culture are thriving.
