Hello, Cadogan:
Yes, there is a bus from Labacolla Airport to Santiago, but only during the day. It has stops at Doctor Teixeiro Street and at Bus Station.
For almost any location, Doctor Teixeiro would be a more convenient stop.
Greetings.

Hello,

There is one bus a day which leaves Santiago airport at 14.45hrs. Plaza De Galicia is the last stop and is in the centre of the town near everything.

The bus going back to airport leaves Plaza de Galicia at 13.15hrs

These times were valid in May 2005 and ticket price was 1 € 65 single.It should take around 20 mins or so.

Have fun in a fab city

only one bus a day? is that right spacehopper how does everyone get into santiago?

RE: RE: transport

Hello again,

I have been to Santiago twice, once I arrived by bus and the second I arrived at the airport. The airport bus seems to be set up to accomodate the hords of people that arrive on the Ryanair flight from Stanstead in the UK. It did seem a bit strange so I presume everyone else gets cab's. It was in April and the Ryanair service had just been launched so maybe it was early days an some more buses have been added

I would definitely put a post up on Santiago -today.com, they are a very helpful and friendly bunch and will be able to tell you if extra bus service has been added. You can also get maps and restaurant info there too.

Let me know if you need to know anything else, it is a really beautiful city and loads of fun. Enjoy it and let me know how you get on with the buses.

Best wishes

There´s a bus every hour to Bus Station, Train station and city centre, appart from Ryanair services which go to Plaza de Galicia and Bus Station. Ryanair buses cost twice the regular service and the buses bellong to the same company.

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

The road of Saint Jacques

by SirRichard

This catholic pilgrimage from Central Europe to Santiago has made this town world famous.
Apostle James (Santiago), being executed in Israel in AD 44, is said to have reached this lands in a stone ship (his sepulchre), that arrived by itself to Flavia, actual Padron, where he would be buried. After that, his remains were translated to Compostela over which sepulcher was built the great epicentric temple symbolic of the pilgrims movement.
Since then thousands of pilgrims arrive yearly to Santiago de Compostela in search of... whatever you name it!

Cathedral Interior

by freya_heaven

whether you are religious or not, the Cathedral du Apostel is definately worth seeing, both the exterior & interior are wonderful.

The many statues around the church are very lifelike. The tomb of St James is also here to see.

I had read the botafumeiro (incense dispenser) is one of the most impressive in the world. which is a sight I wanted to see. Although we are not Catholic we sat through a 1 hour mass, all in Spanish of course, coping with a very bored 18 month old. Only for there to be NO incence dispensing that evening. Typical! (~_~)

Mosteiro de San Paio de Antealtares 2

by suvanki

The aforementioned Convent (Former Monastery) wall closes one side of Praza Da Quintana, and faces the Cathedral facade with the Holy Door.

This wall took 45 years to build!
48 symetrical windows adorn the wall, each having an ironwork grill over, which are sometimes adourned with flowers.

The stone plaque in the centre of the wall commemorates the forming of the Literary Batallion, when Students and staff from the University banded together to protect Galicia from Napoleons invading troops.

At the bottom of the wall runs a stone bench, which is a good place to sit and watch the goings-on in the square.

It was quite peaceful sitting here enjoying the winter sunshine, there weren't too many people here, but I should imagine it gets quite a crowd in Summer.

Convento de San Francisco de Valdedios

by micas_pt

The Convent of San Francisco de Valdedios is Baroque style and was built in the 17th century and later refurbished in the 18th century, accordingly to a Simão Rodriguez design (neoclassical). The St Francis image was introduced then and was manufactured by artisan José Ferreiro.

The legend says that this Convent was founded by St Francis of Assisi in 1214 during his visit to Santiago de Compostela, on a place called Val de Dios (Valley of God).

Nowadays, there is a Museum attached to this convent - The Holy Land Museum that exhibits objects related to Holy Places and to pilgrimage tradition.
