Santiago De Compostela attracts visitors year-round because of its pilgrimage status. Those looking for the best deals should probably avoid the city’s major festival of St. James on 25 July when flights and hotel rooms are at their priciest, although that is also when the city is at its most vibrant. Galicia’s climate is relatively temperate compared to southern Spain, but Santiago is notorious for its rainfall. Locals claim it makes the flagstones look prettier. The romantic atmosphere make Santiago an ideal choice for city breaks in December, when the Christmas lights and lavish patisserie displays in the local bakeries create a festive mood.

Flight was delayed 2 hours due to technical issues they were having at Zurich airport according to the swiss agent when I called. This caused my connection flight to be unviable. The swiss agent was helpful in finding me a partner airline to fulfill my need to get to final destination in eastern Europe. However, the only flight the agent was originally able to find me was a connecting flight through Frankfurt with a 7 hour layover and not only that but they didnt have space on the flight without upgrading me to a higher cabin class at my expense of 384 euro. I asked if this could be waived since the technical issues were not my fault from the beginning and the agent stated they arent. I ended up paying the extra 384 euro for the agent to call me back an hour later stating he found another flight through Munich with only an hour and a half layover which was great, but when I asked for the 384 euros to be refunded he stated that was included in the price difference for this flight and there was nothing he could do about that. I feel like I got scammed out of that 384 euros as that was a cabin upgrade for a flight I never ended up taking that was supposed to be my replacement for an error they were having on their end. I am grateful for the agent finding me replacement flights that worked in my favor time wise but not in being swindled out of extra charges. I also paid 85 USD to "pick my seats" (which honestly feels like a cash grab on behalf of airlines these days anyways) on my original swiss flight that I did not receive back either since I could not pick my seats on the replacement flights as well. Way to use flight delays for swindling your customers Swiss. Kayak was great as usual but I did not have any communications with Kayak directly for this ordeal it was all through Swiss airlines.

City overview

Santiago De Compostela in the north-west region of Galicia, has been a popular tourist destination for around nine centuries. Medieval pilgrims were promised time off purgatory if they made the long trudge from the Pyrenees to pay their respects to the bones of St James in the city’s magnificent cathedral. These days visitors still follow the pilgrim path, although they are just as likely to take advantage of the direct international flights to Santiago’s airport. They encounter a city with a charm-filled, well-preserved medieval old town, where winding, cobbled streets lead to imposing squares, all beneath the soaring towers of the cathedral. It’s an obvious destination for anyone interested in the Middle Ages (and will complete the set for a modern pilgrim who has already ticked off Jerusalem and Rome). It’s not all about ancient stones and gargoyles though. Santiago De Compostela (Spain) is a university city and the student population ensures that the streets of the old town are buzzing with bars and clubs. Santiago enjoys something of a gastronomic allure too. The countless small but elegant restaurants offer the perfect introduction to one of Spain’s most respected cuisines, the Galician fare that accentuates fresh shellfish, traditional boiled octopus and the distinctive green peppers known as pimientos de Padron. The fine seafood is best accompanied by another of the region’s treasures, the crisp white wine called Albarino, made in the nearby Rias Baixas coastal region.

Getting around Santiago de Compostela

The compact old centre of Santiago De Compostela is best negotiated on foot. The winding medieval streets can be confusing at first, but the Cathedral serves as a useful reference point for exploration. The city bus service covers the newer part of the city and can be handy for visiting the concert hall, large shopping malls and the new City of Culture arts complex.

Getting from the Airport to the City
