You thought Santiago was in Spain. And you are right. And you are wrong.
This is Galicia. The street signs, the place names, the language you will hear in the shops, are not Spanish. Which lends a different atmosphere to this splendid, majestic city.
But as your local guide leads you to discover its sacred and profane places, you will see that Santiago is more than Galician culture and majestic monuments. It’s a physical proof of faith. Here you experience the faith that caused the town to be built, the faith that continues to bring over 100,000 pilgrims a year.
Whether you are one of them or not, Santiago is worth discovering.
