When night falls over Santiago de Compostela, the streets take on a magical transformation. Discover the mysteries of Santiago with this free tour which includes a traditional Gallegan dinner and tasty queimada drink.
Mysteries Walking Tour with Traditional Gallegan Dinner
At 8:30 pm, we will meet up at the Plaza del Obradoiro square and begin our two-hour walking tour through Santiago's dark history of witchcraft.
At the end of the afternoon, as Santiago de Compostela is cast in the wonderful warm red glow of sunset, we will stroll through the historic streets to discover all the legends and mysteries of the city.
All the supernatural excitement will be sure to whet your appetite. Therefore, we make a stop to refuel with a traditional Gallegan dinner in the old center of Santiago. We will try octopus, the regional delicacy, and other specialties such as 'raxo', meat tacos served with potatoes. You will also have a choice of a drink including beer, wine, water, and soft drinks.
After the dinner, we will invoke the Gallegan spirits with a traditional queimada, a ritual which involves performing an 'esconxuro' summoning, while an alcoholic drink is prepared from a base of 'aguardiente' liquor and other ingredients.
We finish the evening in a pub with live music, where you will enjoy a free drink.
