Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela - A place to live

by gasca

Santiago is a small beautiful city of 105.000 inh. that constitutes the university center of Galicia with its more than 35.000 students.

A Coruña, in the same province, is a bigger city (let's say 300.000 inh) but its university is less traditional.

It's multicultural athmosphere and his peace makes it a perfect place to live!

Packing List

by b1bob

You don't really need a lot of stuff. Keep an umbrella convenient. If you go in September like I did, it tends to start raining with little advanced warning. If you want to go to the beaches, get sun screen. A 35 mm camera and lots of film will do.

Pulpo a feira (galician styled octopus)

by xanaia about Pulperia Os Concheiros

If you want to try a typical galician dish, you can't leave without trying our octopus (pulpo in Spanish, polbo in Galician) and in this oooooooold tavern you can try it. Don't be scared of the look of this bar, It is a little bit freak and it can give the impression of dirty. But food is excellent, good prices and good and kind people. Every citizen of Santiago knows this place. The prices are cheaper than in the bars of Santiago's Old Town, where all the tourists are. Avoid the bars of Rua do Franco near the cathedral. Galician styled octopus (the so-called pulpo a feira), "pimientos de padron" (Green peppers from Padron), galician cheese, chorizo, spanish jam.... and bread!!!!!

Ah! DO NOT FORGET THAT OCTOPUS CANNOT BE EATEN WITH A FORK BUT WITH A TOOTHPICK. THE TASTE IS SAID TO BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A TYPE OF "GASTRONOMIC CRIME" FOR GALICIAN PEOPLE. People usually drink "vino de la casa", which is a home made red wine, when eating the octopus.

When you finish eating, try to dip a piece of bread in the oil and eat it. That's delicicious.

MEDIEVAL MARKET!!!!!!

by Tami_G

There's a Medieval Market in Santiago every year at the end of August. This year I had the chance of checking it out and I was amazed. It lasted 3 days and I went every single day. The old town transforms itself into a medieval town. There's stalls, street musicians, jugglers..... All the people that work in the market are dressed in medieval fashion and all the decorations, things sold at the stalls and shows going on are medieval oriented.
For more pics and info check out my travelogues.

Santiago de Compostela Cathedral

by Shabu

The Cathedral’s Obradoiro facade dominates the square to which it gives its name, the site where the stonemasons worked during its construction. Built between 1738 and 1750 by Fernando de Casa and Novoa, it is the finest example of Spanish Baroque. Two initially Romanesque towers reinforce its vertical force and the impression it gives of an immense altarpiece, with the bell towers on the right and the Carraca tower on the left.

The ground rises up to the cathedral, which is reached by a magnificent quadruple flight of steps, flanked by statues of David and Solomon. Access to the staircase is through some fine wrought-iron gates, and in the centre, on the level of the Plaza, is the entrance to a Romanesque chapel, the Iglesia Baja which was constructed under the portico.
