Welcome to Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the Galicia region, Northern Spain’s most iconic city. This UNESCO Heritage Site is the final stop on the epic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail; its unique atmosphere, history and cobbled streets draw thousands of visitors each year.
Here, you will have the privilege of staying in a historic building in Spain. Probably the oldest hotel in the country, it is now a 5-star hotel and no other can beat its location, just right at the “Plaza del Obradoiro” overlooking Santiago’s stunning Gothic Cathedral. There is even a guided tour inside the hotel for the curious travellers who want to know all the history of this spectacular building.
You will be wrapped in opulent luxury as you cross any of its four-arcaded courtyards. That’s the perfect backdrop to round off a incredible gastronomic adventure around Northern Spain.
After a reinvigorating sleep, you will savour a sumptuous breakfast with breath-taking views of Santiago de Compostela’s Gothic Cathedral.
You will experience an early morning culinary tour of the central farmers’ market where colours and aromas combine to create an intoxicating gastronomic experience. There you will find the most succulent fruit and vegetables, freshest seafood, Galician octopus and the world famous dry-aged Galician Blond Beef. You will brush shoulders with the locals that arrive everyday to buy sparkling-fresh produce to take home.
After a lively morning in the market you will enjoy a more relaxed activity: a guided tour inside Santiago’s world famous Gothic Cathedral, the culmination of the Camino de Santiago for hundreds of pilgrims who arrive everyday to hug Apostle Santiago after walking or cycling hundreds of kilometres.
