Night experience in Santiago de Compostela
Santiago de Compostela, capital of the Autonomous Community of Galicia and a city declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO thanks to its monumental beauty, extraordinary conservation and for being the destination of a thousand-year-old pilgrimage route: the Way of St. James, which since the 9th century has transformed this spot in the "Finis Terrae" into a meeting point for faith and thought in the western world. Santiago de Compostela has been attracting visitors and pilgrims from all over the world for centuries. It is the most cosmopolitan city in Galicia but at the same time a quiet and natural city. As part of the city's culture we also have the Queimada, a strong alcoholic drink very present in the festivities and celebrations. The ritual and incantation of the Galician Queimada is a magical tradition that continues to this day. At night, in the dark, by the light of the flame of the Queimada itself, reciting an incantation while stirring the alcohol with sugar with a ladle.
What we are going to do?
We will do a guided night experience that is specially designed to get to know the night of Santiago de Compostela and its magic. We will start with a tour of the city of Santiago accompanied by a very special "Meiga" (witch) who will reveal all the secrets and legends of the city. After an hour and a half tour, it will be time for dinner in a traditional Galician restaurant where we will taste some of the delights of Galician gastronomy (seafood, octopus, and other typical seasonal dishes). We will finish the experience by performing the Queimada Spell with the Meiga to scare away bad spirits and bad luck.
