Land of pilgrims and legend
Santo Domingo de la Calzada is in the heart of the Way of St. James, making it a perfect destination for rural tourism and sports such as golf and hiking, or to enjoy the winter resort of Valdezcaray.
It is a jewel on the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago de Compostela, with special places such as its Cathedral and Plaza de España.
There is a legend about its foundation.
It’s said that in the 11th century the site of the town was a large holm oak forest on the banks of a river that flowed down from the nearby Sierra de la Demanda.
A hermit called Domingo settled in this forest, and spent his time aiding the passage through such difficult lands for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela.
