Santiago de Compostela has been a culture and university centre for centuries, most famous for being the end destination of a thousand-year-old pilgrim voyage: El Camino de Santiago, also called the Way of Saint James. Being the capital of the Galician region in north-western Spain, its everyday life is modern and chic. Awarded as a UNESCO world heritage city in 1985, Santiago de Compostela is a historical gem surrounded by lush nature.
