Guided tour to Santiago de Compostela
About this experience
Santiago de Compostela, with its majestic Cathedral is one of the most important pilgrimages sites in the world. It's known for the so-called “Caminhos de
Santiago”. Taking this experience, you will not only visit this wonderful city, but also Valença do Minho, overshadowed by its fortress with two towers and a double wall designed in Vauban Style.
You will be personally collected from your hotel in Porto at 8.00 am and depart shortly after for Santiago de Compostela.
We will reach the destination in less than two hours and by 11.00 am you will attend to the famous Pilgrim Mass.
This special mass takes place every day to acknowledge the pilgrims who have wandered along the Way of St. James to arrive at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. You will have the opportunity to be a part of an iconic ceremony that it's held here since the 9th Century. At the opening of the mass, there is a mandatory tradition: the pilgrims who have reached the sanctuary have their countries of origin and the starting point of their pilgrimage announced at the Mass, as a form of rewarding.
After the mass, you will get a chance to learn more about the background of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela which is dedicated to St James, one of Jesus’ apostles, and is protected by UNESCO World as Heritage listed site.
