  • A historic town with several streets and an important variety of shops, with charming to visit places. Not to be missed.

  • Go to Santiago is a stroll through the old town and see the streets and shops, its arcades and its people, eat something in its pubs and visit the Cathedral, that is Santiago. Well-preserved old town and gives whether it rains or not although the rain and the gray days give a special atmosphere that makes it more attractive.

  • A delight to get lost in these narrow streets, old buildings, beautiful and well preserved. There are several souvenir shops and restaurants there.

  • Actually the old casco is a great way to visit one of the oldest cities in Spain, famous for its diverse Romanesque, baroque and more architectures. Street is preserve in its near original state made out of stone and habitable homes alike. Also provides foreigners with a shadow when extreme hot weather. On the first floor (O Baixo) you may find touristic shops with camino de Santiago, Spain, or Santiago de Compostela keychains hats and restaurants as well. Pulpo (octopus) is one of the delicacy meats everyone loves and gets marketed in a lot of stores, but be aware that is not so good during summer time because it is not the time to catch it and becomes rubbery "pulpo furado". Gastronomy wise the pork is great lomo or jamón. The info center is in the casco histórico and you may ask more info there. Have fun in this great historical city!
  • Stroll through these streets is an unforgettable experience. The atmosphere is extraordinary, the truth. Pretty squares, beautiful streets, beautiful buildings and monuments. And also with a lot of restaurants to replenish forces. Highly recommended.

Where to stay in Santiago de Compostela

Lodging in the city's old district is the most scenic option. Some hotels even offer rooms in renovated historical buildings near the cathedral. Consider a stay in Monte do Gozo, a small town just outside the city that offers 2,000 beds to weary pilgrims.
