Why it is indeed worth visiting Santiago de Compostela
When we tell you that it is worth visiting Santiago de Compostela, we do so with the certainty that you are going to enjoy an unforgettable trip.
Among the main reasons to visit to Santiago (besides the Camino, of course), are:
- It is a city with an incredibly well-preserved historic center. It will simply make you fall in love.
- Santiago has a very wide range of gastronomy, cultural activities and to enjoy a few special days.
- In the context of tourism, it is a cheap destination.
Furthermore, it is a city that has not yet experienced a real boom in terms of population. It is not overcrowded, except perhaps in the month of August, when there is a greater presence of tourism.
Santiago de Compostela: a city to enjoy all year round
On the other hand, although it is true that it often rains in Santiago, this is just another reason to enjoy the city. During the cold months, it’s nice to retreat to its many iconic buildings, such as the Cathedral. Or in a good restaurant or bar, with a warm atmosphere.
And during the summer? Not only is the weather fantastic, but it’s not too hot. You also have a lot of leisure activities during the day and at night, concerts and local festivals. Santiago is worth visiting at any time of the year.
