Spend a day exploring Santiago de Compostela on this tour from Pontevedra. Delve into the history and discover the most iconic monuments in this important pilgrimage destination.
Santiago de Compostela Tour
On the day of your tour, we'll meet at the entrance of the Chapel of San Roque at 9:30 am. We'll then leave Pontevedra behind and set off in the direction of one of Galicia's most important destinations. Santiago de Compostela awaits us!
We'll travel for an hour and a half in a comfortable minibus before reaching the Galician capital. On arrival, we'll dive straight into our tour, spending an hour and a half walking around Santiago de Compostela's historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the guided tour, we'll hear fascinating tales about the city's history and, of course, the Camino de Santiago.
We'll make a stop in front of the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, located in Praza do Obradoiro. After admiring its emblematic baroque façade, we'll head inside to see the tomb of the Apostle Saint James and the famous botafumeiro, or a swinging metal container used to burn incense. We'll also visit the Cathedral Museum.
After the guided tour, you'll have two and a half hours of free time to continue exploring the city's streets and to enjoy some local food in one of its restaurants.
We'll meet back up again at the agreed time to travel to the City of Culture of Galicia, a masterpiece of avant-garde architecture rising from the mountains outside Santiago de Compostela. From here, we'll take in the beautiful views of the city before making our way back to Pontevedra.
We will finish the excursion at 7 pm back at the starting point.
