SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

Santiago de Compostela is located close to the geographical center of Galicia, some 260 m above sea level, and only 30 km from the Atlantic coast. The humid oceanic climate guarantees mild temperatures throughout the year. The annual average is around 15 ºC, with an average of 8 ºC in winter and a pleasant summer, with temperatures between 20 and 27ºC. Rainfall is concentrated throughout the winter and variable in spring and autumn.

The city was declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 1985 thanks to its monumental beauty, extraordinary conservation and for being the goal of a millenary pilgrimage route: the Way of Santiago.

In addition to its cathedral, monasteries, pilgrim hospitals, numerous churches, stately homes and squares, the city also has 16 museums and an amazing contemporary architecture signed by Eisenman, Hejduk or Siza.

The more than twenty thousand students of the five times centenary University of Santiago de Compostela join a stable population of about one hundred thousand “compostelanos” who share the city with several million visitors a year. Santiago deploys a network of accommodation, specific infrastructures for meetings and congresses and a gastronomic offer capable of satisfying all palates and all pockets.
