Santiago de Compostela is the capital of northwest Spain’s Galicia region.
It’s known as the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the alleged burial site of the apostle St. James, where it is said his
remains lie within the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela. There is much to see and learn while on these walks and visiting the small towns along the way.
If the Camino walk is not to your tastes, Santiago is in its own right a wonder to visit, with the centre of Santiago declared a world heritage site, you will be in awe at the streets of medieval origin as well as the charm of the squares and the cathedrals.
