We completed the Portuguese walk in Santiago and went to the noon mass at the cathedral. The next day we joined a long line of a tour that was going into the Cathedral to touch the statute of St. James. We got our credentials stamped...More
The city is stunning. On the one hand you see everyday life, contrasted by an ancient city. While walking, the different eras can easily be traced with countless historical buildings lurking behind the next corner.
If ever there was a case of somewhere that has become the victim of its own success, it’s here. For most of any day here, it’s impossible to enjoy the many historic sites and cultural treasures in the Old City district of Santiago because of...More
Unfortunately and ironically, greed was the crowning attribute in the beautiful, narrow streets, rich in history. It's a shame, really. The restaurants, stores and bars prey on the tourists. Visit it for the history and culture. Stay away from everything else.
Having completed the camino walk it was the highlight of the journey to visit the historic town of Santiago de Compostela. We found navigation relatively easy and enjoyed the scenic parts such as the cathedral and the museum of pilgrimage.
Small, original, interesting, full of history, fabulous buildings. But also invaded with ridiculous souvenir shops and cheap bars and restaurants. Looks like the originality has to step aside for an ugly money making machine.

Well it all depends of the amount of money you are ready to invest. About the hotel it is important that you like how the rooms look and the food, all locations are good because the city is rather small, maybe it is the best to pick a place close to Old town and Alameda park in the newer part of the city. That way you are close to the train station and the old city as well. About the food, traditional is the sea food and white vine, you should try the public market, you can buy whatever you like and there is a service that they cook it there for you, food is delicious and not expensive, also next to it, you have two pubs where when you order a beer you get as much free tortilla as you want. There are many restaurants in the old town to me they are quite the same and they are especially expensive during Camino so beware.
Hope that you will have a nice time there.
