In the Essential Santiago Free Walking Tour you will be able to walk around the historic center of the city of Santiago de Compostela and make the most of your time during your visit to the capital of Galicia.
The tour starts at the Obradoiro square, where many of the most important monuments of the city are located, such as the Cathedral of Santiago, the Hostal de los Reyes Católicos or the Pazo de San Xerome. Here we will give a brief historical introduction of how the city came to be and the legend of the Apostle Santiago. Later, the tour will go through the squares surrounding the cathedral, exploring its corners and explaining the monuments in them, combined with different anecdotes and curiosities.
Halfway through the tour, you will arrive at the Abastos Market, a must-see place to learn first-hand about Galician gastronomy. From there, the tour continues through the old part of the city to Alameda Park where, in addition to the last of the explanations about the statue of Dos Marías, you will find the best viewpoint of the city.
