Tour description

Santiago de Compostela, city of pilgrimage and capital of Galicia has a lot to show.

In a two-hour tour, with anecdotes, interesting facts, and a lot of history, you will get to know everything that is essential in this city.

Find out with us why the famous Praza do Obradoiro is called that or where the name of Santiago de Compostela comes from. In addition, at this point we will know the powers of the city.

We will visit the squares around the Cathedral and we will know its importance and its meaning within the city and the pilgrimage.

We will go to the Alameda Park, with the most spectacular views of the city and we will meet characters who have left their mark on Compostela. Do you already know the Dos Marías?

We will find hidden streets and different enigmas that this city hides in the facades of its buildings or the ceilings of its arcades. Don't worry if you don't know what these strange things are: we will reveal all the secrets to you.
