Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Enrich your visit to the adjoining cathedral by also going to Museo Catedralicio. Tour parts of the cathedral not publicly accessible, such as the Treasure Room and Relics Altar. Visit the archeological excavations or head up to the roof for a panorama of city sprawling below. The museum also boasts tapestries by Goya and Rubens, as well as large library. Signage is only in Spanish, so for a fuller experience for those who do not speak the language, buy the accompanying audio-guide and learn about what it was like to arrive in Santiago as a pilgrim. Also note that the museum is spread over four floors and has no elevator. Put Museo Catedralicio and other Santiago de Compostela attractions into our Santiago de Compostela tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
