Rosalía de Castro was born at Santiago de Compostela. She is one of the greatest protagonists of regionalism in Spanish literature, and her intimate studies of the Galician province early brought her into literary prominence. Her Cantares gallegos appeared in 1863; her En las orillas del Sar, in 1884.
