Would you like to find out further details about the Santiago Cathedral? Would you like to learn about the art and culture of the Galicia's capital city? Join us!


The Santiago de Compostela Cathedral Guided Visit starts in Calle Tras Salomé, some minutes away from Plaza del Obradoiro, where the magnificent Cathedral is prominent. We will have the pleasure of going into this temple and learning everything about it.

First, we will visit the Romanesque rests of this Santiago Cathedral, the tomb of the Apostle, which became a city over the years. Our  will unfold the most interesting secrets and curiosities of the “Ruta Jacobea” .

Then, we will discover the history of the Codex Calixtinus, a bibliographic jewel with an incalculable value that was attempted to be stolen, and talk about the diferent interpretations of the impressive Cripta del Pórtico de la Gloria. This work, sculpted by Mateo used to instruct those pilgrims who didn’t know how to read. We will also admire the Capilla de La Corticela, where the Adoración de los Reyes Magos is represented, la Biblioteca and the Sala Capitular, composed by a huge collection of tapestries and a room only dedicated to Goya.

After the Altar Mayor, we can embrace the Apostle Santiago, one of the most important traditions in this city together with the botafumeiro, used to avoid the bad odour caused by thousands of pilgrims on the past.

Finally, those who want to contemplate the city from this temple, can go up to the spectacular balconies.And here, we put an end to our Santiago de Compostela Cathedral Guided Visit, an exclusive opportunity to admire this fantastic architectural treasure during your stay in Galicia.
