Santiago de Compostela: "Town of the Apostle"


Santiago de Compostela is the final destination of the legendary medieval Camino de Santiago (Way of Saint James), now considered by Unesco a World Heritage Site. Today it attracts visitors from all over the world. The town is named after the Apostle Saint James ("Santiago"), who is buried here.

Santiago is certainly one of Spain's most monumental towns, with a particular architectural style all of its own. But it is also a very lively town with one of the most famous Universities and a large number of students who guarantee youthful ambience in between the historical walls. Also, the region's cuisine is of great reputation, and it is said that nowhere you can eat better seafood than in Galicia.
