Magnificent Santiago Cathedral is a monument to Christ’s apostle, James, whose relics are believed to have been discovered here in the 9th century. Half a million pilgrims flock each year to this incredible shrine, which was once the third most important place of pilgrimage after Jerusalem and Rome.
Four majestic squares surround the Cathedral and your guide will explain the characteristics of each of them. Admire the impressive square of Plaza del Obradoiro, still the focal point for pilgrims when arriving in the city.
Time permitting; you will have a brief chance to browse for souvenirs from the local vendors.
Refreshments will be served at the 15th century Parador Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos during the tour.
Santiago de Compostela is undoubtedly the showpiece of Galicia and a ‘must-see’ attraction from the port of Vigo.
