The stunning highlight of this captivating half-day tour from La Coruña is the magnificent Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. You'll be struck with awe as you stand before the awesome burial place of Spain's patron saint, the Apostle James. The stunning Baroque façade with its lavish twin towers leads to the Romanesque interior with its lavish altar, subterranean crypt where the relics of St. James rest in a silver urn, statue of St. James at which the faithful bow and pray and a reliquary containing a piece of the True Cross of Jesus. After visiting the Cathedral and squares of Obradoiro and Platerías, you will have some free time to explore independently or wander through the squares to shop for souvenirs and religious articles among the local vendors before re-boarding your motorcoach for the return drive to your ship.

The drive between La Coruña and Santiago de Compostela is approximately one hour each way, subject to traffic conditions.
