Tour description

Our free tour will be exclusively outdoors and will take us through the most epic places in Santiago de Compostela.

To do this, we will travel back in time to medieval and modern times to discover churches, squares and manors that are related to an event that occurred more than a thousand years ago.

We will see in person the place where, according to legend, the soul of a pilgrim is seen night after night, as well as the exact point from which a medieval hermit sighted lights in the distance that would change the history of the world. We will witness some places that seem to hide treasures and many others that remain harmless over time. In short, we will learn about the legends, still alive, that will help us understand the beauty and magic of Santiago.

Our route will take us through the following points:

  • Museo do Pobo Galego (meeting point)
  • San Roque Hospital
  • Oldest house in Santiago
  • Pazo de Amarante
  • Cervantes Square
  • Church of San Bieito
  • Church of Santo Agostiño
  • Food Market
  • Church of San Fiz de Solovio
  • Mazarelos Arch
  • Statue of Alfonso II
  • Church of San Martin Pinario
  • Plaza de la Azabachería
  • Obradoiro Square - Cathedral
  • Platerias Square
  • Quintana Square


Please note that the free tour does not include entry to the museums or the cathedral, but is based on an outside tour.

You will leave my tour knowing the history of the capital of Galicia through an authentic journey through time.

And, of course, discovering the legends and mysteries that make Santiago a truly magical place.
