Lift offered

by gmg61

Hi all!

I will drive from Barcelona to Santiago de Compostela on July 8th, leaving at around 15 from Barcelona. I am alone in the car, so that I can offer a lift to anybody smart and talkative who would need it. The itinerary would be through Zaragoza, Burgos, Leon.

If anybody is interested, please contact me at the VT mail or in the forum!

Cheers

G.

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

The Cathedral in Astorga

by into-thin-air

When we walked through Astorga Unfortunately the Cathedral was closed for the afternoon siesta and as we were wanting to get a few more miles walked we couldn't really afford the time to stay and wait for it to open again, However we did have a Good Look around the outside of this Awesome Building, The Door alone was well worth a look, Pity we didn't get to see the inside but I guess that's just life !!!!

Casa del Deán

by Redang

Built between 1.747 and 1.753, it was used to host the bishops visiting Santiago de Compostela, then, house of the Dean of the Cathedral, and now it's for the Oficiina del Peregrino (Pilgrim's Office).

Where: Rúa do Vilar, 1

Leaving the Praza das Platerías, on the left (it's the first building).

The Cruz de Ferro

by into-thin-air

One thing that you Won't miss whilst walking the Camino de Santiago is the Cruz de Ferro, It is a Famous landmark just after the Tiny Village of Foncebadon and was put there to guide Pilgrims over the High Pass There !! Also it has another Important significance and that is that All Pilgrims should place a stone at the bottom of the cross that they have brought with them from there home -- This act symbolises a Lightening of the Load as you are getting Closer to Santiago de Compostela !!! So don't forget to bring that stone with you went you set off !!!!

Alameda Park

by breughel

If it is not raining in Santiago de Compostela take the opportunity of visiting the Alameda Park at a 10 minutes walk from the cathedral. It is the city’s most representative green space and consists of three different parts: Paseo da Alameda, Carballeira (oak grove) de Santa Susana and
Paseo da Ferradura.
The park borders part of the old town and provides a magnificent view of the monumental west façade of the cathedral. It shows a large variety and size of trees and ornamental species, such as its oak groves. These oak trees are typical from Galicia.
The Paseo da Alameda has three walks, one for every social class of that time; the wealthy classes in the middle, the lower classes on the right; the clergy, professors and elderly on the left.
There is an abundance of statues, fountains, artistic granite and cast-iron benches.
In the centre is the hermitage of Santa Susana; from the eastern part one gets a view over the university Campus.
The atmosphere and views from this park are really pleasant.

Squares of the Cathedral (1/4)

by Redang

Praza do Obradoiro/Plaza del Obradoiro/Obradoiro square

This is the main square, not only of the Cathedral but the whole Santiago. It is the largest of its kind in the whole of Galicia and it becomes the center point for the 25th July Saint James’ day celebrations when it is tranformed into an open air auditorium for a series of concerts and events.

This square has four very important and beautiful bu¡ldings:
- The Cathedral (west façade; main and fifth pics)
- Hostal dos Reis Católicos (second pic)
- Pazo de Raxoi (third pic)
- Colexio de San Xerome (fourth pic)

All four buildings have their own tip (see the Things to Do section).
