Founded in the 9th century when the remains of the apostle James was discovered in Galicia and the Apostle James (Santiago) was declared the patron saint of Spain. Visit the impressive Cathedral and its museum. The work on the Cathedral of Santiago, built to house the saint’s body, began in the 11th century and is Romanesque in style. It’s most outstanding feature is the “Portico of Glory” with its beautiful stone carved statues. See the Plaza do Obradoiro and the Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos.
