Historic Route

“Santiago, sea of ​​stone / shuddering with the wind”.  Celso Emilio Ferreiro

The Tourist Train of Santiago de Compostela shows you the city in a comfortable way. It starts from the Cathedral of Santiago, a World Heritage Site since 1985, and borders the historic center by the old walls of the city.


Starting from Obradoiro Square, where the Cathedral of Santiago is located, you can admire the main places of interest in the city from the train. During the tour we will go through San Francisco, the Auditorium of Galicia and university campuses, with their most relevant Colleges. We will border the old part of the city by the “Alameda” and by Rúa da Senra, where the old walls and the entrance gates to Santiago stood. We will continue through the monastery of San Domingos de Bonaval, where is the Pantheon of Illustrious Galicians, the Galician Museum of Contemporary Art, the Convent of Santa Clara and the monument to the Pilgrim, before returning to Obradoiro Square.

The route of the train may suffer some variation due to works on the road. Sorry for the inconvenience.
