Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela is the end of the main European pilgrimage route, the Way of St James (Camino de Santiago). After the discovery of the Apostle’s tomb, millions of pilgrims crossed Europe to reach the Holy Town in the ancient finis terrae.

Nowadays this spiritual route continues to be a living tradition, but visitors can arrive more easily thanks to direct flights connecting us to many European airports.

Today Santiago continues to cultivate its charm, its rich heritage, generosity, and love for doing things well, to offer unforgettable experiences to all our visitors. We have more than one thousand years’ experience welcoming and taking care of our visitors.

Not many destinations can say the same. For UNESCO, Santiago de Compostela “is one of the most unquestionable World Heritage Sites”, an “ideal town that is bursting with history and timelessness”.

Its Cathedral and its medieval squares and streets constitute one of the most beautiful urban landscapes in Europe. It is a town of moving beauty. Although it is the capital of Galicia, a Holy Town, and a European Capital of Culture, its small size, its simple everyday life, and its safety make it a friendly, charming, warm town, easy to understand and navigate, where all find their own place. Nobody ever forgets eating in Santiago.

From its market, the Plaza de Abastos, and more than one thousand restaurants, the town offers the delicious, fresh, and extremely healthy Atlantic cuisine. Eating well is a duty in Compostela; wine and tapas are a pleasure.

With 5,500 hotel beds (4,700 of them in hotels with 3 or more stars), its hotel offering includes historic buildings, boutique hotels, design hotels, charming and gastronomic hotels.

To these are added 5,000 seats in meeting and event venues, together with the peace of mind provided by an extensive network of companies specialising in services for the MICE industry.

Because it is the heart of the region, Santiago de Compostela is the best starting point to discover the rest of Galicia.

The finis terrae, old-growth forests, and Atlantic beaches just 30 minutes from the town, are the backdrop to Roman and medieval villas, remote monasteries, chapels along the Camino, Celtic settlements, fishermen’s villages – all places to get lost in.

The SCCB makes it easy. The town makes itself available to event planners through the Santiago de Compostela Convention Bureau. The SCCB provides free services to centralise the preparation and price quotes for conferences, meetings, and incentives to be held in Santiago de Compostela: information and bookings, contact with municipal institutions and local companies, design and booking of the leisure schedule, previous inspection visits… and much more.
