5 reasons why Santiago is the ideal destination for May


Contemplate Santiago from the rooftops

Observing the city  always has a special charm. But if the plan is to walk the roofs of the Cathedral, it becomes an unforgettable experience. The visit is guided and also includes a visit to the Palace of Gelmírez, another jewel made in Compostela. At an altitude of 30 meters above the Obradoiro and with the old area of Compostela at your feet, the views are magical.

The Plaza de Abastos and its restaurants

Walking between the stands of the Santiago de Compostela market is another of those essential experiences that Santiago offers. Buying in the Plaza de Abastos and eating in its nearby restaurants is a hobby shared by tourists and locals. Tasting the best fresh seafood or enjoying a good octopus dish are two of the typical choices in this area, but you can also try some contemporary Galician cuisine. You'll be surprised.

Feeling in Hogwarts in the History Library

The library of the Faculty of Geography and History of the University of Santiago de Compostela is one of the best kept secrets of the city. The faculty is located in a historic building in the old town, whose interior hides one of the jewels of the University of Compostela. Admission is free, but shhh kept silent! The library is still used and is full of students.

A cultural plan

Santiago is a city full of cultural plans. Go to discover any of its museums or galleries and immerse yourself in art. The Museo do Pobo Galego, to better know the Galician culture, the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáneo, designed by the prestigious architect Álvaro Siza or approach to the Cidade da Cultura (Gaiás) to discover the temporary exhibitions. The difficulty will be to choose only one.

Pubs in the old part of the city

Because the old area of Compostela is much more than its monuments. A glass of wine to start the evening, continue with a tapas dinner and end the night in the pubs of the old area. Because going out in Santiago and its small premises where traditional bars and modern pubs coexist, is an experience you will not regret.
