Postal Assistance

by bikerken

I have to mail a parcel to a friend who will be arriving shortly in Santiago.
What is the name and all particulars such as address of the main post where she could go and pick up the parcel.

Thank you.

Re: Postal Assistance

This is the address of the central post-office in Santiago de Compostela:

ORFAS, 17
15703 SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA (A CORUÑA)

So you would have to address the parcel as follows:

Name of your friend
Correos y Telegrafos
Poste Restante
Orfas, 17
15703 Santiago de Compostela
Spain

Here is a link with more details about this post-office:

The address is the one given in this thread right above your question.

Just put your girlfriend's name at the top, then continuing with "Poste restante", etc.

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

The atmosphere

by micas_pt


As I entered Santiago de Compostela’s old quarter I felt an atmosphere of “holiness”, it is hard to explain. There are lots of tourists just visiting this beautiful place, classified by Unesco as World Heritage site, but there are also some other visitors to whom seems more important the catholic meaning of the place than the architecture itself.

Since there is a University in Santiago de Compostela you can also feel a certain students’ atmosphere, ... a nice mixture of students, catholic visitors and tourist, ... A very beautiful and well kept place. Worth a visit no matter what religion (or none) you may be.

At the first sight of the Cathedral I was struck by this imposing building. It is really huge and beautiful, with elaborate stone works. Every single detail is fantastic, I just kept looking at it and wondering how long that took to be built, how many craftsmen worked there ... I was almost speechless.

Don't Forget your Sleeping Mat !!!

by into-thin-air

When walking the Camino de Santiago, Especially if you are in peak season then a Sleeping mat really is a Must as there is a lot of demand on the Refugios and beds can be Scarce -- the closer you get to Santiago de Compostela -- the scarcer the beds become, However most Refugios will let you sleep on the Floor so if you want Some comfort that mat is a Must !!!

What to eat when you're in Santiago (or Galicia)

by Tami_G about Any

OK. So it usually happens that you're in a new place, you go to a restaurant and you don't know what to order because it all looks like greek. So I'll give you some tips on what you can eay when you're in Santiago or anywhere else in Galicia. SEAFOOD: almejas a la marinera (clams in a delicious sauce) , mejillones (mussles), vieiras, calamares, pulpo (octopus)I know it might sound disgusting but it's YUM. Try it, at leat you can say you've tried octopus!
FISH: merluza a la gallega(hake), lenguado (sole)...
Galicia is know for its excellent seafood and fishes so whatever you try should be good.
EMPANADA: type of savoury pie. Can be made with tuna fish, meat, cod fish...
PIMIENTOS DE PADRON: small green peppers. Some can be hot! That's the fun thing about them
COCIDO: it's a kind of stew with pork meat and vegetables.
VINO: the best wines from the region are Ribeiro and Albariño. They are white wines.
PAN: bread can be very good. In every restaurant you will get some portions of bread with your meal.
QUEIXO: there are very good cheeses. One example is "queixo de tetilla" which, as its name indicates, has the shape of a breast.
TALKING ABOUT FOOD HAS MADE ME HUNGRRY! I'LL FINISH LATER.

Saint James tomb

by gasca

Here there are supposed to be the remains of Saint James Apostle.

The story goes further. There was one priest, called Maximilianus (not sure about the name) who was an heretic at the times of Jesuscrist. He had many followers and he was behead in Rome. He had so many followers that they carried his coffin from there to Finisterre (in latin "The End Of The Earth") doing what today is called the Way of Saint James. People from the Catholic Church saw that what they did was even worse than killing him: it provoked a more intense worship.

In the middle age, when the Way was forgotten, the Church took profit of the fall in the oblivion and changed the name of that man for Sain James, the apostle.

Pope was even there but no Saint James is there.

Monasterio de San Martin Pinario

by xanaia

The monumental Monastery of San Martin Pinario, of 16th century, is one of the most impressive examples of Barroco in Santiago. It was built over a Romanesque church, which has been an important medieval religious center.
