Overview

Santiago de Compostela, maybe the end of a long trip, certainly the beginning of a new adventure!

The city of Santiago de Compostela is located in the northwestern part of Spain, in the Autonomous Community of Galicia. It is the arrival of the famous roads to Santiago de Compostela which are Christian roads of pilgrimage.

About Spain

Santiago de Compostela is an historic place in Europe due to the pilgrimage to this city. Its cultural heritage is very important and the historic centre was listed to the UNESCO world heritage in 1985.

This part of the city contains many monuments that deserve to be seen. So, walking around the narrow streets and watching the fronts of the houses and palaces is already a very pleasant activity. But the greatest place of Santiago de Compostela is without any doubt its cathedral. It houses the grave of Saint James the Great, final point of the pilgrimage, and presents many architectural styles.

Take the time to follow the pilgrim’s Mass during which the botafumeiro will sway over your head...
