Enjoy plenty of time to discover this iconic city at your leisure.

Your escort will accompany you to Santiago’s Obradoiro Square, regarded as one of the most beautiful sites in Spain, before you set off for approximately three hours’ exploration on your own.

Will you head to the magnificent Santiago de Compostela Cathedral? A UNESCO site, the remains of St James are reputedly buried here, drawing pilgrims to the shrine for centuries. Gaze in awe at the Portico da Gloria, an interior masterwork of Romanesque sculpture, and marvel at the four squares surrounding the building, representing the points of the Latin cross.

Keen to check out more stunning architecture? Head to the 16th-century university, the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria or the Gelmirez Palace. But don’t forget to save some time to shop for souvenirs and treat yourself to a tasty tapas lunch.
