Taxi or Bus fare from Vigo to Santiago de Compostela

by yokamura

I will visit Vigo by a passenger ship in August.
The ship arrives at 8 am and departs at 4 pm.
Can I visit Santiago de Compostela by bus or taxi?

To get the bus you have to first of all get to the bus station that is in the centre of Vigo. There is no direct bus from the port to SdC.
You do not say what day your ship is in port so if you look at the following web site you can find details of travel times etc to suit your self.

If you take a taxi it will coast quite a bit. (Maybe as much as €150, each way) The journey is something like 90km. Some of the route is along the pay road. You will be expected to pay for the tolls as well as a fare.

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

Galician Cuisine

by suvanki

One good reason to visit Santiago de Compostela is to enjoy the excellent food available in the many restaurants, shops and the market

Seafood is its speciality -

Pulpo a la gallega - octopus with olive oil and paprika,
Pulpo a feira or cachelos- octopus and potato
Chipirones-small squid served whole
Chocos -larger breed of squid
Mexillons -mussels
Ameixas- clams
Veiras-scallops
Berberechos - cockles
Navajas - razor clams
Percebes-barnacles
Bogavante-similar to lobster
Necoras - small crabs
Buey del mar- a large crab
Gambas-prawns
Langostino-king prawn

Also oysters, crayfish, shrimps etc.

Hake, Turbot, grouper, Sea Bass, dolphin fish, sole, sea bream, angler, mackerel, sardines(xoubinos), marraxo-a type of shark, eels (anguilas) are all to be found.

Seafood is also used in soups, stews, paellas, pies or pickles

Galician Pie or empanada - are pastries filled with fish, meat or seafood with raisins or tomatoes added. An empanadilla is a bite size version.

Caldo Gallego is a soup made from cabbage or turnip tops, potato and a small piece of meat-sometimes smoked pig fat. There are many varieties of this Galician speciality. I tried this and enjoyed it!

Galician Beef is renowned for its quality, and pork is to be found in many dishes throughout the winter, when the pig is slaughtered and every piece is utilised in cuts of meat, some being preserved by smoking, brining, making into sausages etc.

What every single tourist miss...

by xanaia

There are things that only the people from Santiago know and that do not appear in the travel guides. We have made up some tricks to play on the people that come to Santiago for the first time, especially if they are our friends. Every single one trusts us and they all fall into the trap. This is what I like best from Santiago, I enjoy doing that. Am I bad?
So, if you don´t know anyone from Santiago you are gonna miss the funniest part from this city's legends and history. Just go to my travelogue on "I tricked you!!!" and I will try to explain you some of these tricks.

Casa Manolo

by b1bob about Casa Manolo

Round about 11.00, Fernando and I ate at a restaurant called Casa Manolo- a reasonably priced restaurant near the university. I took cockles for the first course and some kind of beef for the main course. Fernando took salad for the first course and fish for the main course. The whole thing came to 1400 pesetas. It was good food for a reasonable price, but the service was kind of slow.

Clothes Shopping in Ensanche

by Nexus7

The neighborhood of Ensanche was built in the 60s by the demand of Franco for urban sprawl. In doing so, a decent suburban community is here and is also the location of much of the clothing stores. Such brands as Tommy Jeans, Massimo, Amici and Zara (a Spanish brand) are located here. Clothes are priced fairly decent, especially during 'Rebajas' or literally, rebates, which is a time of the year (July-August) where store owners put everything on sale for nearly half price. This event is all over Spain.

Plaza de la Quintana

by Shabu

The Plaza de la Quintana is known for its stone bareness. It is a meeting point for excellence and emits a wonderful array of light and shadow, both day and night. It is on two levels; the lower part is known as Quintana de Mortos and the upper, Quintana de Vivos. The royal Portico is located here, where the religious processions exit, and the famous Puerta Santa, which is opened only in Holy Years
