Tour description

For 2 hours we will visit the Museum and the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela with a very special visit that will begin in the Plaza del Obradoiro, right in front of its museum.

We will tour the rooms of the museum getting to know its Romanesque part, with its choir and its majestic marble columns while we continue climbing to the upper floors to appreciate the images of pregnant Virgins, curious, right? We will also see its cloister with all the rooms of the museum and we will end by accessing the impressive balcony with views of the Obradoiro.

Once the Museum is finished, we will access the interior of the Cathedral of Santiago without queuing to appreciate its main altar made of gold leaf , its baroque organs and the main chapels.

Our sustainability policy means that our visits are preferably carried out in small groups of 10 people with a maximum of 20 in order to guarantee the quality of the tour.

Clients should bring headphones
to use the radio guides in case it is necessary since at Malva Tours we are aware of the amount of trash that is generated with the use of disposable headphones.

🚨 The visit requires a pre-access payment of 6 euros per person, which will be made in cash before starting the free tour🚨.

🚨 🚨 The person who books the tour is in charge of having the tickets purchased. They are priced at €6 per person (Permanent collection: Museum and temporary exhibition room) and must be purchased on the same day of the visit. It is advisable to take into account the discounts for students, pilgrims or seniors that the Cathedral offers when purchasing your tickets. The Cathedral also has visits to the Tower or Roofs that are NOT included in this reservation. 🚨 🚨

The free payment characteristic of free tours will be made by each client at the end of the visit inside the Cathedral of Santiago to make the most of the entry in cash or card.

The visit may change if the church does not allow access to some of its chapels or if the usual schedule of masses is modified.

Let us show you the charm of our city under our VIOLET umbrella.

Additional Information:

* Reservations of more than 6 people are not accepted. The guide reserves the right of admission. For reservations for more people, contact the provider.
