Santiago de Compostela holidays

North-west Spain’s most famous city, the discovery of the tomb of the apostle St James led to the city becoming the third most important place for Christians to visit during the middle ages, after Rome and Jerusalem. Pilgrims from around Europe would travel through France and northern Spain to visit.

Modern day visitors are still greeted by the twin spires of the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela with its baroque facade and its interior, which is the same as 800 years ago. The city has numerous outstanding buildings including fine examples of neo-classical, gothic, baroque and Romanesque architecture.
