Departure: 08h00 a.m. On this Full-Day Tour we will pick you up at your Hotel and we will cross the border to Spain. Santiago de Compostela is our destination, a city famous for its majestic Cathedral, where the grave of Saint James (the “Greater”), one of the apostles of Jesus Christ, can be found. This city is a mandatory place, for religious or skeptical travelers. It is classified as World Heritage by UNESCO and it is one of the oldest pilgrimage sites in the entire world, through the also famous “Caminos de Santiago” (Way of Saint James).

And after this impressive visit, we will return to Portugal and we will visit the town of Valença do Minho and the North Atlantic City of Viana do Castelo, with a notable and monumental heritage.
