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 great 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 all four.Admire the majestic square of Plaza del Obradoiro, still the focal point for pilgrims when arriving in the city.
Refreshments will be served at the Parador Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos, a late 15th century pilgrim hostel.

Enjoy superb views of the typical Galician countryside, before reaching Santiago de Compostela, which is undoubtedly the showpiece of Galicia.
