On arrival to Santiago Compostela, you will be immediately struck by the sense of history in this old city, designated UNESCO World Heritage, with its main plaza, narrow winding streets, dozens of ancient buildings the grand Cathedral - the destination for millions of pilgrims!
Inside the Cathedral, you will see the silver crypt containing the ashes of St. James and the dramatic barrel-vaulted ceiling, admire the magnificent organ and appreciate the church's sheer size, one of the largest in Europe!
While the church is the star attraction of Santiago Compostela, the town is full of other gems including the historic setting of Palacio de Rajoy and the deluxe hotel, Parador dos Reis Catolicos, one of the oldest hotels in the world, having served visitors as far back as 1499 when it offered lodging to pilgrims.
