About the Tour

The guided tour , free tour mode, to the Cathedral Museum and the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela focuses on the history of the Cathedral and the tomb of the Apostle, the heart of the city that bears his name. We are official guides authorized by the Chapter of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela to carry out these visits.

The tour begins with a visit to the Cathedral Museum. For this, the entrance fee will be charged in advance. The prices are based on the Rate of the Cathedral Chapter, which range between €4 and €6 depending on age or if you are a pilgrim, retiree or student.
With the guide authorized by the Cabildo, we will visit the different floors and rooms where we will see works of art from the 13th and 14th centuries, the Renaissance cloister, the Chapel of the Relics, the Chapter Library with priceless writings such as the Codex Calixtino... and many other treasures that can only be seen by visiting the museum. This will be the threshold to the evolution of the Cathedral throughout the centuries.

Then we will go to the Cathedral, without queuing.
We will talk about the Pórtico de la Gloria and many other curiosities such as El Botafumeiro. We will be amazed at the majesty of the Baroque altar with the image of the seated Apostle in the center of the 13th century. This image is to perform the long-awaited hug that pilgrims perform once the goal of their pilgrimage has been reached. Every detail of the altar has its meaning. We will continue our journey through the central and adjacent naves, minor chapels and under The chapel of the High Altar is the tomb of the Apostle Santiago along with those of his two disciples Theodore and Atanasio.
