After winding through the Portuguese countryside and crossing the border to Spain, you arrive at Santiago de Compostela, the capital of Galicia. This sacred destination, both a World Heritage Site and an example of historic urban regeneration, oozes charm and character. Visit its impressive cathedral, reputedly the place where St. James is buried, and admire its Romanesque and Baroque styles.
Enjoy free time and explore Old Town as you please. Grab lunch at any of the cafes and restaurants that fill the city's plazas, or wander through the cobbled streets and browse some of the local stores.

Home to an abundance of fine architecture and breathtaking views of the Lima River, this city is sure to amaze you.
