The city of Santiago de Compostela, declared a World Heritage Site, is inextricably linked to the Camino de Santiago. Its Cathedral is one of the most visited cathedrals in the world, and the Plaza del Obradoiro is a world pilgrimage centre through which thousands of pilgrims pass every year. The Parador de Santiago de Compostela, originally built as a pilgrims’ hospital, has played a major role in the history of this area, which today houses a spectacular museum.
From the Plaza del Obradoiro there are several walking routes through the historic centre, which can take you to other iconic places in the Galician capital, such as the Mercado de Abastos, the Pazo de Fonseca and the Museums of the Pogo Galego and the Pilgrimages.
Its parks and gardens are also good places for a stroll, and they offer the best views of the city.
Of course, we can’t forget its cuisine. In Santiago de Compostela you can sample the delights of Galician cuisine, such as padrón peppers and Tarta de Santiago. There are also five Designations of Origin in Galicia, so don't forget to try them!
If you have time, you should try to see the Galician estuaries: the Rías Baixas from Muros to Vigo and Baiona, with its Illas Atlánticas natural park; the Rías Altas from A Coruña to Barqueiro; A Costa da Morte, from Carnota to Malpica; and the Mariña Lucense.
