Tour description

Santiago de Compostela is not only a city of joy, inspiration or spirituality. It also has its other side, darker and not so often told.

If you like crime stories, shady mythological characters, werewolves or serial killers, this is your tour.

We will meet in the Plaza de Quintana, with the mysterious shadow of the pilgrim watching over us, and we will advance towards lesser-known areas of the city.

We will talk about legends and stories that, unfortunately, are completely real, such as terrorist attacks in the Praza de Praterías, ideological persecutions with shocking causes and consequences, or even time travellers.

If something is known within the world of magic, esotericism and the paranormal in these lands, it is the meigas, of which we will tell you what they do, how they dress , and, in some cases, how their tragic end was. But there is more to tell: did you know that Galicia is the cradle of exorcisms in Spain? We will tell you where they are made, how the ritual is and how it is not, you will know cases and experiences that will leave you frozen.

The final part of the visit takes place in the beautiful Bonaval Park , a complex made up of the park itself, the Convent of San Domingos de Bonaval, old orchards and gardens and finally, the cemetery, which we will cross.

Route: Plaza de Quintana de Mortos, Praza de Praterías, Rúa Xelmírez, Plaza de Cervantes, Capilla das Ánimas, San Domingos de Bonaval, Bonaval Park, Rúa do Home Santo, Porta do Camiño.
