Ourense is the magical province of Galicia. The Via de la Plata enters the community here and could
be not better: a particular climate, huge native forests, natural thermal pools at every step and some of
the funniest traditions of Galicia.

Santiago de C.

Santiago de Compostela is the capital of northwest Spain’s Galicia region. It’s known as the culmination of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route, and the alleged burial site of the Biblical apostle St. James. His remains reputedly lie within the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela, consecrated in 1211, whose elaborately carved stone facades open onto grand plazas within the medieval walls of the old town.
