Santiago de Compostela is a city that is shrouded in history, traditions and numerous legends. It is the capital of Galicia, the place where the pilgrimage was born and where the Camino de Santiago ends, so it is not surprising that there are so many tourist attractions that can not be overlooked. Everything we know today was built around the Cathedral, and among its streets you can discover monuments, buildings and very important destinations in the history of Santiago. 

The Museo do Pobo Galego preserves forgotten traditions and customs

The Museo do Pobo Galego, or the Museum of the Galician People translated into Spanish, opened its galleries for the first time in 1976 in the convent of Santo Domingo de Bonaval, popularly considered the Gateway to the Camino. It is located on Costa de San Domingos street in Santiago de Compostela, and inside you can find both temporary exhibitions and other activities of cultural interest. 

Originally, the Museo do Pobo Galego was set up as an organization exclusively dedicated to the service of the community. It is for this reason that the building is dedicated to safeguarding some typical traditions and customs that, unfortunately today, go unnoticed, forgotten and set aside from official history. It is a museum where the essence and the footsteps of an entire people are preserved.
