Pilgrimage destination from the Middle Ages, Santiago de Compostela is considered the first tourist destination in Europe.
The cultural exchanges taking place during centuries in this small city in the North West of Spain and the spiritual motivation of most visitors formed Santiago’s amazing personality. It is a very young and active town thanks to the university population.
Santiago de Compostela is the final destination of all faith paths: the French, the Portuguese, the English one… but also a great place to use as headquarters to get to know the unexplored Galicia, the most western region in Spain. The short distance to the airports of Vigo and even Porto in Portugal, just about 2 h away, make Galicia and North of Portugal two destinations easy to combine.
