Just arrived at Santiago after doing the Way but you hardly have time to stay and visit the city? Would you prefer a short tour and have lunch afterwards? Stopping in Santiago on your way to other Galician cities and you don’t have much time to spend? Would visiting the most basic places in Santiago be enough?
Well then this is your tour: Santiago Essential!

The city of Santiago grew around the Cathedral. The old town has always been linked to the Apostle St. James and the place where his remains were found. The Cathedral is the center, the heart of Santiago. That is precisely what we want you to take with this tour: the very heart of Santiago.

That is why our Santiago Essential tour aims to provide those who have little time to spend in our city to get the feeling that they have had contact with what is most essential and fundamental. We will move on for an hour visiting the squares around the Cathedral (Obradoiro, Inmaculada, Azabachería, Quinatana and Fonseca). In each of them we bring into focus what is most important (monuments, history and legends. As though a time machine we will travel through space and time and get steeped with the culture that since ages have soaked the streets of Compostela.

Afterwards, you have the possibility to join our Gastronomic Activities that begin at the end of this visit.
