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 learn everything essential about this city. It was the first tour that we developed and that we have
special love


We will explain to you why the famous Praza do Obradoiro is called that way or where the name Santiago de Compostela comes from. Also, at this point we will know the powers of the city.

We will tour the squares around the Cathedral and learn about its importance and meaning within the city and the pilgrimage.

We will briefly leave the old area to visit the Alameda, where three statues with a lot of history live and we will observe the city skyline from this beautiful park, one of the most visited in Santiago. Do you already know the Dos Marías? This is where the camera is essential.

We will find hidden streets and different enigmas that this city hides in the facades of its buildings or the roofs of its arcades. We will reveal all the secrets to you.


Route:

  • The four squares that surround the Cathedral (Obradoiro, Inmaculada, Quintana and Platerías),
  • Rúa da Raíña
  • Rua do Franco
  • Alameda Park
  • hidden streets
  • University Square
  • Food Market
  • Cervantes Square.




IMPORTANT:

* Free payment for each attendee at the end of the visit.

* Punctuality is important. Reservations for visits will be saved for 5 minutes after the start of the visit. Once this time has passed, the places will be released for the waiting list.

* In the case of not attending, it is requested and appreciated that the reservation be canceled or communicated so that the guide is not waiting and does not make the rest of the attendees wait.

* Reservations of more than 6 people in the same group of friends/family are not allowed . If making separate reservations for a group larger than 6 people, the guide may reject attendees at the same meeting point.

* The client can request receipt of their payment or claim forms.

A good basic introduction to the city and its history. Very friendly guide and the 2 hours went by quickly. She pointed out lots of ‘curiosities’ which was fun. Thank you Irene

I loved our free guided tour with Lidia! She gave a good visit to all details around the Cathedral aswell as some areas around it like the park and the university. Her English was sufficient for everyone to understand the information provided. I really advise this tour to other Pilgrims and tourists at the start of their visit to Santiago! It gives a deeper perspective tot the city and stories around it.
