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 counted.

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

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

We will talk about legends and stories that, unfortunately, are completely real, such as terrorist attacks in Praterias Square, ideological persecutions with shocking causes and consequences, or even time travelers .

If something is known within the world of magic, esotericism and the paranormal in these lands, it is the witches, 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, what the ritual is like and why 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: Quintana de Mortos Square, Praterías Square, Xelmírez Rúa, Cervantes Square, Ánimas Chapel, San Domingos de Bonaval, Bonaval Park, Rúa do Home Santo, Porta do Camiño.

The guide was local and knew a lot about the town. She was very animated and had a good sense of humour. She was approachable to ask additional questions. I found her professional and she looked after the group well. Time flew by as it was all so interesting and her stories were humorous but filled with factual information. I am so pleased I tried Guru Walk for the first time as opposed to the usual company I would book tours and excursions with in Europe. Thank you I will be looking forward to tours in other cities!

El chico es educado pero daba la apariencia de falta de conocimientos, desconcierto en la historia de Santiago y si hacías alguna pregunta se pierde.

100% recomendable. Totalmente diferente a lo que estamos acostumbrados y eso en nuestra opinión junto con las habilidades de la guía lo convierten en una experiencia que merece la pena.
