Tourist guide: what to do and see in Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela

The end of the road for Jacobean pilgrims.

Santiago de Compostela could be described as the beginning of the end, the final stop on the Way of St. James and therefore a city of pilgrims that is naturally hospitable to the countless visitors and the students who attend university here every year. That may be why the city is lively both day and night. The most famous night of all is the celebration of St. James the Apostle with breath-taking pyrotechnics on the façade of the cathedral, a magnificent structure which overlooks the Plaza del Obradoiro, the Raxoi Palace and the Hostel of the Catholic Monarchs with rightful pride, right in the historic center that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They say Santiago is not the same without rain falling on its porticoes, and it's true; do bring an umbrella... and an open mind and heart to absorb the unequalled experience that is this city.
