We are a Camino de Santiago DMC specialized in showing this historical town and route.
In 1987, the Council of Europe proclaimed this route as the first European Cultural Itinerary. Now, Camino de Santiago, commonly known in English as St. James Way, remains the path pilgrims use to reach Santiago de Compostela.
There are 1800 buildings along the route, not only with religious backgrounds This proves this route’s essential role in Europe both socially and culturally. For example, travelers here exchanged ideas and goods between the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe. Nowadays, some visitors cross Spain in El Camino, while others take shorter visits to fewer towns.
Santiago de Compostela also has cultural elements besides the historical route. Visit the Cathedral, compare the Old Town to the New Town, and learn about the pilgrimage at the museum. Finally, try some of Galicia’s best produce and seafood at the markets.
In conclusion, there are a number of ways to explore this area, and we as a Camino de Santiago DMC can arrange different itineraries.
