About Turismo de Santiago

Santago de Compostela is a city in the North-West of Spain, near the Atlantic coast. The city is especially known for being the destination of the Way of St. James and is therefore one of the most famous places of pilgrimage in the world. Legend has it, that the grave of St. James is beneath Santiago's church of pilgrimage – the final destination of about 75,000 pilgrims each year.

 

Actually, the grave of St. James was a main reason of the foundation of the city. Based on ancient stories there was a Mausoleum out of the first century recognized as the grave of St. James during the beginning of the 9th century. Meanwhile, as a church was built above the tomb, a little town started growing around the famous grave and would eventually become the capital of Galicia, plus a major university city in Spain.
