Join a small group for a guided visit of a spectacular place of worship followed by canapés at a famous hotel.

The medieval city of Santiago de Compostela is home to the eponymous Romanesque cathedral, built to honour St James. Step inside this UNESCO World Heritage site and marvel at its astounding architecture as your expert guide shares stories about its past. Be sure to admire the main altar and the statue of St James and descend to the atmospheric crypt where his remains are reputedly buried.

In the cathedral’s museum, take a close look at the archaeological exhibits pointing to the rich history of the building. Outside, pause to take in the majesty of Plaza del Obradoiro and photograph the ornate Fountain of Horses in Praterías Square.

Ready for a rest? Sit back and relax at the beautiful Parador Hostal dos Reis Católicos. Originally built in 1499 as a hospital for pilgrims, it’s now a luxury hotel. What better place to enjoy a selection of provincial tapas along with local wine?
