What you'll do

During the tour, which takes around 2 hours, we will visit the historical center of Compostela. We will leave the Praza da Quintana, we will visit the Abastos market, we will walk through the most emblematic streets, such as Rúa do Vilar and Rúa do Franco, we also will visit Alameda Park and we will finish the route walking through Praza de Praterías and the Obradoiro.
Other things to note
Although it is said that here in Santiago rain is art, the rain also wets. If it rains, bring an umbrella and clothing accordingly. If it is sunny, great, but I recommend sunscreen because we will be 2 hours in exterior.

I'm from Santiago and since I was a child I've been linked to cultural and musical groups in the city. During most of my working life I have worked in Compostela as a journalist and I am currently an official tourist guide of Galicia. I know very well the daily life in Santiago, its streets and monuments, its charming corners, its curiosities... In this walk you will discover the historic center in a relaxed way and from the point of view of a local.

Where you'll be

La Quintana, the starting point of the walk, is for most of the people of Compostela the most beautiful square in the city. There is the Holy Door and the Berenguela clock tower. We will also see the other facades of the Cathedral and meet emblematic figures of the history of Compostela, such as 'The Two Marías'. My favorite place on the route, the town market (Praza de Abastos), full of bustle and first class products.

I had a great time on Sandra's tour—she knows a lot about the city and was able to convey that information in a really easy-to-understand and interesting way. I got a great introduction to Santiago de Compostela and would definitely recommend Sandra to anyone looking to explore a wonderful city.

La visita a Santiago con Sandra es muy, muy recomendable, no solamente por su conocimiento de la ciudad sino por su forma de contarlo y de destacar aquellos aspectos que mejor conectan con gente interesada por la cultura. De manera que las dos horas del paseo con ella fueron una auténtica delicia. Además, mostró una abierta disposición personal orientándonos, antes y después del paseo, sobre aspectos de la ciudad (restaurantes, centros culturales y exposiciones, etc.) . Por todo ello, fue un auténtico acierto haber podido contar con ella.

Es una actividad postiva. Pasas dos horas llenas de cultura e historias de la ciudad. Sandra le pone mucho cariño a lo que cuenta y es muy bonito ya que aporta vivencias en primera persona porque es vecina de Santiago de toda la vida y eso es un valor añadido.

I am one who normally does not do tours. I am so glad that I did this one! Sandra made the experience informative, fun and personal. She knows this city - and loves it- and she was able to convey that to our group. The others in our small group were another reason it was such an enjoyable experience. Thank you Sandra!

It was a great walk with Sandra and hear her sharing about Santiago in a personalized way. I had a good time: and knew more about Galicia after walking through Galician towns along the camino. Don’t miss it if you are in Santiago! Thanks
