Best Free Tours in Santiago de Compostela

Walking the “Camino” (the Way of St. James) is the dream of countless travelers around the world. It’s a many-months pilgrimage that crosses forests and mountains, following ancient paths across all Europe. The final destination for these adventurous travelers is Santiago de Compostela, a wonderful town in the north-west of Spain. But what about those who don’t feel like hiking for months? Don’t worry, the Free Walking Tours of Santiago de Compostela got you covered. These easy walks organized by local guides will introduce you to the best landmarks of the city in just 2 or 2,5 hours. During the Essential Santiago de Compostela City Tour, travelers will understand the deep meaning of the complex facade of the Cathedral, its history, and very peculiar traditions. For those who want to dive into the paranormal, religious and spiritual life of the Galicia region, we highly recommend a Free Myths and Legends Tour of Santiago de Compostela.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela might be a small provincial city, but its old town was declared a World Heritage City by UNESCO thanks to its monumental beauty. Over 200,000 pilgrims from all countries around the world walk, cycle, ride or fly to Santiago de Compostela at least once in their lives to experience this absolutely unique place. Of course, most travelers know about the stunning 11th-century Cathedral. With St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, it’s among the very few churches in the world built over the tomb of an apostle. Most travelers spend a long time appreciating the Portico of Glory—a Romanesque portico and the cathedral’s main gate. It’s a masterpiece with deep sacred meaning created by Master Mateo. Joining a Free Tour in Santiago de Compostela with a guide, you will also visit the extensive Praza do Obradoiro square, the Hostal dos Reis Catolicos, the Benedictine monastery of San Martino Pinario, and more.

Things to Do in Santiago de Compostela

There’s more than churches, pilgrims and historical landmarks in Santiago de Compostela. After joining Santiago de Compostela Free Walking Tours in the morning, most travelers make sure to spend the afternoon lying in the shade of the centenary trees in Almada Park or learning about local plants in the botanical garden. Culture buffs will probably prefer to spend some free time appreciating the stunning futuristic architecture of the City of Culture of Galicia. This big cultural complex by world-famous architect Peter Eisenman was designed to look like rolling hills, and it holds interesting conferences and events. Those who want to know more about the Celt origins of this remote region should head to the Ethnography Museum of the People of Galicia. We also recommend spending some time getting to know local food and buying souvenirs at the big Central Market. Cheese, bread and white wine from the region are typical products that all travelers should taste!
