Galicia by road
Santiago De Compostella airport is situated in Lavacolla some 10 kilometres from Galicias capital city, Santiago, a leading catholic pilgrimage since the 9th century, whose old town has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site. The citys main cathedral, another world heritage site, dates its history back to the very foundation of Christianity, being the reputed tomb of Saint James who died in 44 AD.
But whilst the city is a must see, those wishing to truly experience the majesty of Galicia should take to the road if they wish to enjoy all that is on offer. Fragas de Eume national park offers wonderful walks up to an ancient monastery whilst the Playa de las Catedrales is easily the equal of any beach in Europe.
