Santiago is much more than a cathedral. Its historic center is a World Heritage Site. But beyond, can boast a good number of green areas and natural landscapes. One of them is the river walk of the small river Sarela. The conditioned route covers about seven and a half kilometers from A Peregrina to Amañecida (Vidán) and can be done both together and by small sections, which go from bridge to bridge. You will also find fountains, laundries and old mills and tanneries.
As it could not be less, Santiago also has its street of wines and tapas and that is none other than the mythical Rúa do Franco. More central, in addition, can not be, since it runs from practically the Praza do Obradoiro to Porta Faxeira, just opposite the Alameda Park.
Autumn is a great station to visit Santiago de Compostela. Without the agglomerations of summer, the city can be enjoyed calmly and offers, in addition, a cultural and entertainment program varied and aimed at all audiences. The season of the Real Fhilarmonía de Galicia begins, the many Compostela museums (Cidade da Cultura, Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea...) raise all kinds of activities, music festivals (CortaPega, Outono Códax Festival), cinema (Curtocircuito) and even puppets (Galicreques)... In the autumn there are also very popular celebrations in the Galician culture and, of course, you have to talk about good food: it's time for chestnuts, 'caldo galego' or succulent and strong 'cocido'. The agenda, you see, is full. For that reason, we have decided to help you with a selection of the appointments that we believe are essential.
Christmas, according to Christian tradition, has its origin in the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. But, although we are not religious, visiting nativities is an activity that adults and children like.

Do you know that Santiago has one of the few official disc golf courses in Spain? It is located in Monte do Gozo Park, and has eighteen baskets, a par 58, distributed in a field of 1,775 meters. In addition, the best thing is that they are freely accessible and everyone can enjoy them.
The Portico da Gloria will reopen on December 1 and the visits will cost ten euros, twelve if they are made jointly with the Museum of the Cathedral and the Colexiata de Sar. However, from Monday to Saturday, three groups of up to twenty-five people, one of them pilgrims, will have free access.
If you want to see the Pórtico da Gloria without paying, you will have to hurry. Next Tuesday, September 18, the free visits will end and the great work of Mestre Mateo will be closed to the public again. Although this time, and after ten years of laborious restoration work, will be for a short time. The Pórtico will now be encapsulated to avoid deterioration but it is expected that this action will be completed in November. Then, you can visit again, although you have to go through the box office first. What has not yet been determined is the price of the visits, although it is presumed that it will be around twelve euros.
