Your tour ends at the cruise port for your onward journey!
Before attending the Pilgrim Mass in the Cathedral at midday, you get to discover the walled medieval city of Santiago de Compostela through a short, guided walking tour. The pilgrimage site of Santiago de Compostela is a city located in Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. According to folk tales, the remains of the apostle James are kept in the crypt below the main altar of the Cathedral.
The medieval town of Betanzos was named “Brigantium” by the Romans. It is one of the seven capitals of the Old Kingdom of Galicia and conserves three medieval doors, palaces, and tombs of noble warriors. Additionally, the city has a unique and impressive landscape due to the three rivers that flow in the region: Mandeo, Mendo, and Mero.
La Coruña is also known as the “City of Cristal” because of the number of typical Northern Spanish Coastal buildings with extensive galleries. The city always maintained a close link with its Celtic and Roman heritage, reflected at The Tower of Hercules. The Tower of Hercules is the only working Roman lighthouse in the world and the symbol of the city. Here you have some time to visit the Tower and enjoy the views from the lighthouse over the rough Atlantic Ocean. Furthermore, you enjoy a panoramic tour of the city’s main attractions, including the long promenade, the Riazor Beach, and a short walking tour of the old town including the Maria Pita Square.
