Tour description

There are many places in Santiago de Compostela that keep these legends about spirits and rituals . Our tour through streets, squares, corners, churches, old cemeteries... collects that popular memory of the city that you should know to better understand its way of understanding life, where the cult of death and everything spiritual is lived naturally.

Our meeting point will be the Plaza de Cervantes , the place where the executions of the Inquisition took place. Let's start strong! We will take a tour of the Capela Das Ánimas , where we recommend that you say a prayer for the souls of the condemned. Just in case…

Already in Plaza 8 de Marzo , it is possible that you will encounter the spirit of that blacksmith unjustly convicted... Do you want to know his story? Also… there is no tour without a cemetery! Bonaval is the old cemetery of the city, which still continues to generate stories of spirits and apparitions.

A tour of the Jewish Quarter will be an interesting experience for our guide to tell you the legends that surround this sacred place, as well as those of the Plaza de San Martín Pinario. Already in Plaza A Quintana Dos Mortos , you will learn first-hand the history of its particular night spectrum. Will he be a monk or a pilgrim?

Our particular tour continues through the Plaza de Azabachería and the Plaza del Obradoiro, where they say that every day a miracle occurs and a soul is converted. You are ready?

Let yourself be carried away by our expert local guide, who will tell you the most incredible legends and anecdotes about wandering spirits, local characters that linger in memory, strange sacred rites... If you are one of those who like mystery, intrigue, suspense, this free tour is for you!
