Galicia / Spain

Valle Inclán, one of the most renowned Galician writers, said that Santiago de Compostela was centuries old, yet eternal (“más eterna que antigua”). And the fact is that the stones of the Old Town seem to have been there since the dawn of time.

This architectural heritage, which attains its uttermost expression in the Cathedral itself, reveals a city that is deeply marked by religion. For Compostela has been the last stop of the Camino de Santiago for over 1,000 years, and the Camino is the most important pilgrimage route in Europe.

Indeed, Santiago Old Town –declared Heritage of Mankind by the UNESCO- is one of the main attractions of the city, although it is not the only one.

Santiago is a welcoming city and it offers a broad range of services. The cost of living is highly affordable and it is a safe place, with a very low crime rate.

It is the capital city of Galicia, a bilingual, age-old region where Spanish and Galician coexist as co-official languages. Galicia is a crossroads between the Spanish-speaking and the Portuguese-speaking worlds, and it is a wonderful example of cultural diversity.

Moving around in Santiago is easy and trouble-free. This is a small city and you can walk almost anywhere. And there are a few very convenient buses lines too.
