Santiago de Compostela

Each year, Santiago de Compostela, capital of Galicia, welcomes millions of visitors from around the world, both for religious trips and the beauty of the place. The historic city centre is listed as world heritage by UNESCO. This ancient city is distinguished by its impressive architectural ensemble. This is reflected in the palaces and churches that line the streets such as the famous Cathedral, the Collegiate Santa Maria la Real de Sar, Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos, Casa do Cabildo, and squares of its historic centre, a district do not miss.

It is true that when we speak of Santiago de Compostela, we immediately think of the famous road that leads pilgrims for centuries to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela:  undoubtedly one of the most powerful and unforgettable journeys through Europe.  This destination also offers a vibrant university with over 30,000 students coming each year. The historic old town is busy throughout the year with a wide selection of restaurants, tapas bars, pubs and nightclubs; an ideal setting for organizing incentive activities in the heart of town.

In terms of gastronomy, Santiago de Compostela has nothing to envy to its neighbouring towns, because it is an integral part of the culture and is even considered an art. The range of restaurants and bars for all budgets is considerable. From small family “bistros” to Michelin starred restaurants, from traditional dishes to modern and creative cuisine, with one thing in common: the quality of local products and seafood.

The city is also a destination for culture and nature, since every year, it offers many concerts, plays, festivals, and exhibitions that visitors will discover in the Galician Centre of Contemporary Art, the Museum of the Galician People, or the Museum of the Cathedral, but you will also find many parks and gardens in the city such as San Lorenzo de Trasouto, and nearby you can enjoy a picnic in the forest or orientation's games in the exuberant vegetation.

The fabulous location, the valuable historic monuments, the Galician culture and gastronomy make the city of Santiago de Compostela a really appreciated and requested destination for business and leisure trips. This city is hosting more and more important medical congresses and it offers an interesting setting for original team building activities.
