Full description
Over 500 years of history will be explored on this walking tour. From the Cathedral of Santiago, Plaza Nueva, the Church of St. Anton and the ruins on which it stands, to the Mercado de la Ribera. This is where the town was born, this is where the port was, and from where the city opened to the world - serving as a bridge between northern Europe and the Hispanic kingdoms.

You'll be guided by your professional tour guide in a small group. Learn the history that took place in the streets that Miguel de Unamuno once walked through.

Your guide will also take you on a traditional “txikiteo” or “poteo” (bar crawl) to the area's most iconic bars.
Includes
  • Entry to the Palace of Liberties, Yhon Palace, and a traditional market
  • Pintxo-pote (Tapa and drink)
What’s Not Included
  • Transportation to/from attractions
