Santiago de Compostela City Tour

Plaza Obradoiro

#ItaloPendola Plaza Obradoiro


This tour will give you the chance to walk and touch history; Santiago is considered along with Rome and Jerusalem as one of the capitals of Christianism due to the presence of the tomb of the Apostle Saint James the Great. I will describe you the fascinating stories of kings, archbishops and noble fights concerning this jewel of Spain. An exciting town with positive energy of just arrived pilgrims, tourists and students of its renaissance University, with its beautiful courtyard

Visiting the museum/hotel  of The Hostal of the Catholic Kings will give you the chance to see where the pilgrims were given hospitality 500 years ago in the building that is these days one of the oldest Hotel in the world!

We will walk through its alleys and cobbled streets, imagining for a moment to be back 500 years ago while people go on with their traditional activities; guilds like the silversmiths or jetsmiths are still there as part of the scene in Platerias Square, Azabacheria Street; restaurateurs historically established in the Franco Street; the ideal panoramic from the Alameda park. The fascinating squares around the Cathedral; Quintana de Mortos and Obradoiro will tell you the greatness of Compostela.

In morning weekdays tour we will visit the traditional market – Plaza de Abastos –  with its traders –  in many occasions  producers, harvesters, butchers and fishmongers selling their fresh vegetables, fruit, local cheeses,  fresh sea fruits from the Rías.

A big variety of atlantic ocean fishes, salt fish, poultry, fruit, meat. Plaza de Abastos will give us the chance to see how it provides from private clients up  to important chefs of local restaurants as part of this sort of human, lively galician showcase.
