Tour description

The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is a stunning example of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. It is believed to have been built in the 9th century, although it has undergone several renovations and expansions over the centuries. The original construction was ordered by King Alfonso II of Asturias and was dedicated to Santiago Apóstol

One of the most notable features of the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral is its famous Puerta de la Gloria, which is a masterpiece of Romanesque sculpture. This stone carved door was created by the sculptor Master Mateo in the 12th century and represents scenes of the Last Judgment and other religious figures.

IMPORTANT: Entry to the Cathedral costs €6 per person. to be paid at the beginning of the visit to the guide.

Even though we booked a Spanish speaker, our guide was fluent in English which suited us very well. We were only 2 persons so got a great tour. A really nice guy with great knowledge of the Cathedral. Thank you. Charlie and Anne

Tenía reserva para el 16 de abril a las 15.30 hs y como fui la única interesada en concurrir ese dia para hacer el tour, acepté la propuesta del guía para modificar la fecha para ayer 18 de abril a las 15.30 , pero el guía nunca se presentó ni me avisó que el tour no iba a realizarse. Una muy MALA experiencia .
