Historic center of Santiago de Compostela

The historic center of Santiago de Compostela is one of the most popular places in Spain. This area of the city was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985 by Unesco. It is comprised of different buildings located in the old area that in the eleventh century protected the old city wall and other neighborhoods that although they were outside the walls have a lot of historical value.

Although we know the city under the name of Santiago de Compostela, until the year 813 there was a village called San Fiz de Solovio. Due to the discovery of the tomb of the Apostle Santiago, on July 25, 813, this small village grew to end up becoming the city we currently know. From that growth, the historic center of Santiago de Compostela was born, an area that must first be crossed to find inside the famous Cathedral of Santiago.

Not only the Cathedral: museums, monuments, squares...

Within the historic center there is a wide variety of shops and restaurants with different gastronomic offers. Inside, there are also museums, foundations and different monuments that can be visited to get to know the history of the city much better. In addition, in one of its limits, exactly in Porta Faxeira, we find the main access to another of the most popular points of Santiago, the Alameda Park.
