Address: Rúa Vilar 63. 15705 Santiago de Compostela
It is the "goal" destination par excellence, the conclusion of one of the best known routes in the world and therefore an aspirational site, full of symbols, and synonymous with achievements for millions of pilgrims who have made the Camino. So, without a doubt, we are talking about a hospitable city, used to receiving visitors from all over the world, a meeting point where to live authentic experiences. Its Atlantic cuisine stands out with the Plaza de Abastos market, the wine and tapas routes, the seafood, the octopus á feira, the tetilla cheese, the Santiago cake and the Galician wines, such as Albariño and Ribeiro. Also its architecture, a stone forest full of convents, churches, noble houses, museums, landscaped cloisters, fountains, passageways and some of the most beautiful monumental squares in Europe. And its great claim, the Camino, an experience of discovery and connection with the environment and with people. An activity very aligned with the priorities of companies today: taking care of their teams, reflecting beyond daily stress, connecting, talking, listening, betting on the human factor.
The international airport, just 10 minutes from the historic center, connects the city with the main national and European cities. It has a unique hotel plant with more than 5,500 beds - 4,700 of them in hotels with more than three stars - and offers consolidated professional, monumental and cultural infrastructures. Santiago is a universal, university, research and creative city. Its University, five times a hundred years old, is the guiding axis of education in the city, and the main engine of congress activity in Santiago de Compostela, together with the medical-health sector. The Campus Vida, which is part of the Network of Singular Research Centers, generates an important scientific, social and economic impact in the region and aspires to become one of the best 100 biocampus in the world.
Gastronomy. From its market, the Plaza de Abastos, and in its more than a thousand restaurants, the city offers delicious, fresh and very healthy Atlantic cuisine, which bases its excellence on the overwhelming quality of seafood and garden products. Discovering traditional and contemporary cuisine, having tapas in the streets, going for wines, tasting cheeses and preserves, nibbling on the terraces, dining in ancient monuments or under camellias are some of the rich Compostela specialties.
