Santiago de Compostela/Galicia plans changed, what to do?

We made plans with our friends many months ago to arrive at Santiago de Compostela and spend the the week between Christmas and New Year with them in Galicia. Their plans changed. We do not want to spend all our time in Santiago. Changing our ticket back to Madrid before we head back to the US will be expensive.

Do you have recommendations for us on how to make the best of this situation? Traveling to other interesting places by bus, train and possibly making our way back to Madrid?

Thank you in advance

Travelling by bus or train does limit your options.

In Galicia you could visit A Coruña;Vigo; or Lugo. The later is, for me the most interesting. It history goes back to Roman times and is very much in evidence today.

To get to A Coruña or Vigo you can take a bus or the train. To get to Lugo you have to catch a bus.

All three can be done as day trips from SdC too.
