Speaking of historical value, this museum may well take the cake in Santiago. Just a few steps from Plaza del Obradoiro, the Pilgrimage Museum houses an impressive collection of art and archaeological artifacts discovered in the cathedral during the twentieth century, as well as other important works that were stored in its basements. The heart of the museum is an overview of the different religious pilgrimages that take place in the world, with special attention, of course, to the Camino de Santiago and the Jacobean Route. This is the ideal place to discover its roots and what motivates thousands of pilgrims each year to undertake this unforgettable adventure. It is located in the old Bank of Spain building after an intense renovation by Jorreto Manuel Gallego, a Galician star of contemporary architecture. It covers an area of almost 38,000 square feet.
