This morning you will set off to explore the spirited setting of Santiago’s 19th century Mercado de Abastos with your local expert. A stone vision brimming with the freshest offerings from the sea, your guide will help you explore the market’s fishmonger stalls showcasing a bounty of shellfish delicacies like navajas (razor clams), berberechos (cockles) and percebes (gooseneck barnacles), as you procure your prized seafood treasures for lunch. Build your appetite with a private walking tour through the city’s spectacular Old Town, an UNESCO World Heritage site adorned with Romanesque, Baroque and Neoclassical architectural gems, stately plazas, hidden cloisters and scenic rúas (streets). Enjoy a majestic glimpse of the city from leafy Alameda Park before savoring a very special lunch featuring your hand-picked seafood delights back at the Mercado. The afternoon will be dedicated to visiting the city’s most sacred space, the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, the glorious culmination of a pilgrimage along the Way of St. James. Originating from Roman times, the magnificent cathedral dates back to the 11th century and offers a study in Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, including the 12th century masterpiece, the Pórtico de la Gloria, a vision of extraordinary sculpture work. Tonight you’ll dine within the convivial setting of one of the city’s most acclaimed Michelin-starred restaurants.
