Tour description

Learn about the stories that surround the Templars, witches and our curses and traditions in a single tour!

On this tour , the mystery that surrounds the Templars and witches is intertwined with the most deeply rooted traditions in Galicia.

We will meet in the Plaza del Obradoiro under a VIOLET umbrella to begin the legend that surrounds the world of the Templars . Do you know what they did? Were they present in Galicia? And in Santiago? Was it the only religious military order? Why are they linked to the Camino de Santiago? Don't let them tell you lies and come find out the truth about them.

We will also talk about the pilgrims who came to Santiago and who never left and about the cursed house in the city of Santiago.

We will deal with the subject of witches... or witches? and its connection with the Holy Inquisition. Are they mythological beings or not? Are there other beings in Galicia? You know what they say... "Habelas Hainas..."

We will visit the least visited part of the city to learn about the curses and traditions that surround the land of the Santa Compaña and its belief in the afterlife.

  • Obradoiro Square
