Santiago de Compostela Cathedral

Located in the northwest of Spain, the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral was built upon the purported resting place of Saint James the Great, one of Jesus’ apostles. Due to the holy nature of the church, the site has become a pilgrimage destination, seeing thousands of travellers make their way through the Galician countryside every year along one of the Camino de Santiago routes. The Santiago de Compostela Cathedral hosts over 2.5 million visitors per year, and is of Romanesque design with later Gothic and Baroque elements.

Camino de Santiago Luxury vs Standard

If you are thinking of setting out on a pilgrimage in Spain, you might be wondering what the difference is between the Camino de Santiago luxury vs standard. The main difference between the two is the level of accommodation, with the luxury option providing 4 star hotels throughout and the option for a pilgrim massage at the end of the tour to rest your aching bones. If you are looking to travel in style, then you will certainly want to consider the Camino de Santiago Luxury Tour.
