    What to Expect
    The original and first free walking tour in Santiago de Compostela. This tour starts at the Obradoiro Square, where the 4 powers of the city are presented. Then this tour goes around the Cathedral showing the main squares of the city and their meaning in the city's history: Inmaculada, Quintana de Vivos and de Mortos, Platerias, Fonseca.

    You will understand how Saint James came to Galicia, when the tradition of the Camino started, why the Pilgrims use a shell...

    This first part of the walk takes the most famous monuments of the city and the second part is much more local, taking you to the Local Market (Mercado de Abastos), hidden squares, narrow streets and the Alameda Park, with the best views of the Cathedral.

    All this walking tour in the city will be carried out by a local guide that knows perfectly the city, not only the stories that he will tell you but also whatever you want to know about the city of Santiago de Compostela or the region of Galicia.

    And of course, the best advises to enjoy completely Santiago de Compostela: best places for tapas, lunch and dinner, where to go for some drinks, museums, parks... Whatever you want to know!

    And at the end, you are free to pay as much as you want.
