Santiago de Compostela ©
As the site of the sacred cathedral that marks the end of the pilgrimage route of the famous St.
Cathedral De Santiago de Compostela and Museo do Pobo Galego are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Tower of Hercules (Torre de Hercules) and Igreja de San Fructuoso will appeal to history buffs. Explore Santiago de Compostela's surroundings by going to Vigo (Playa Samil & Islas Cies), Lugo (Palloza Museo Casa do Sesto, Piornedo & Muralla Romana de Lugo) and Monumento a Maria Pita (in La Coruna). There's much more to do: shop like a local with Sargadelos, see the interesting displays at Museo de Historia Natural, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and explore the world behind art at Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea.
