Full description

Face your fears on a night tour through the ancient streets of Santiago de Compostela. Learn from your guide about the city’s Catholic history in Obradoiro Square, hear tales of supernatural forces in Azabachería Square, and watch out for apparitions in Quintana Square.

Begin in the Platerías Square with an introduction to the many legends about Santiago and its history that spans centuries. Admire the Romanesque buildings and uncover some well-kept secrets. 

Walk to Obradoiro Square and pause to see the rectory, the city hall, and Xelmírez palace, a home to bishops and hotel to clergymen since the 12th century.

Follow the path of pilgrims in the middle ages by finding their designated doorway to the cathedral in Azabachería Square. Here is where you’ll also learn the history of meigas, or witches, and the amulets that protect you from them, and of the Knight's Templar who inspired the Game of the Goose.

Finish in Quintana Square, where a ghost is said to appear when night falls. Hear about the legend of Santa Compaña and practice the ritual of Queimada to ward off any evil spirits.

    Diese Nachttour war wirklich super! Mónica ist eine sehr gute, kompetente und auch sehr nette Führerin und hat alles sehr gut, kurzweilig und interessant (auch mit vielen Bildern) erklärt. Man bekommt hier Infos über Santiago, die man bei keiner anderen Führung bekommt. Ich kann diese Tour jedem empfehlen und würde sie sofort nochmal machen. Daumen hoch!
