Tour description

This tour is the perfect way to introduce us to the fascinating history of Santiago de Compostela, allowing us to be enveloped by its monuments, churches, palaces and monasteries.

We will begin our walk in the famous Plaza do Obradoiro, located among all the powers that have erected and governed the city for centuries: the imposing Cathedral, the destination of tens of thousands of pilgrims each year; the Pazo de Raxoi, headquarters of the Compostela City Council; and the Pazo de San Xerome, rector of the University. Then we will immerse ourselves in the millennial streets of the old town to learn everything that the ancient stones of Compostela hide, in whose origins History and legend intermingle. Our path will take us to places such as the Hostal de los Reyes Católicos, the Monastery of San Martín Pinario, the squares of Quintana and Cervantes, and the second most visited place in the city: the Mercado de Abastos.

We will leave the old area through Porta Faxeira, and, after passing by the 2 Marías, we will enjoy one of the best views of Compostela from the Alameda viewpoint.
