Here’s a suggestion for experiencing Santiago in a different fashion after finishing the Way: surrounded by stones, we’ll taste the essence of Galician cuisine, discover the most characteristic corners in the city and relax body and spirit in an urban spa.
The last day on the Way of St James, when we reached the city of the Apostle filled with emotions, deserves a special place in memory. We propose an experience that will connect you to the city in a deep, joyful and fun fashion and then allow you to rest the body and mind, leaving behind the hardships of the pilgrimage.
Stone, gastronomy and the soothing power of water
Praza do Obradoiro square, the arrival point of all the Ways
As we enter Compostela via the urban stretch of the Way of St James, we’ll inevitably feel how our excitement grows until we reach Praza do Obradoiro square. Once here, any efforts made during the pilgrimage will be rewarded.
The centre of the square is marked as kilometre zero, the arrival point for all the Ways. There is a plaque carved into the ground where you can read the Declaration of the First European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe in 1987. This is the point where all of the radiating paths that form a star shape covering the square come together.
