Hello! I’m happy to meet you.

I’m Loretta, welcome to my blog GaliciaStyle.

After teaching for many years in the US, I  recently retired and returned to my hometown in A Coruña, Spain. Even though I miss many people and friends I came across during my life in Chicagoland, I’m thrilled to start this new chapter back home.

On my blog you will find the most fabulous stories, breathtaking places to visit, remarkable people and many landmarks in Spain that I find interesting.
