Catedral de Santiago de Compostela

Successful night-time visits to the Cathedral

The night visits to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela began on 10 August. These are guided tours for groups of up to a maximum of 25 people and are organised by the Santiago Cathedral Foundation.

These visits allow guided tours of the interior of the Cathedral at night, once it is closed to the public. The aim of this initiative is to showcase the results of all the restoration and conservation work that has been carried out in recent years, as well as the new lighting that has recently been installed.

Its success has been such that the number of visits has been increased from 2 to 3, given the high demand and the public’s interest. This decision was taken to make it active from 20 August, as there were no more tickets available until September. Thus, every night a total of 75 people will be able to visit the Portico, the tribune, the crypt, the main altar, the Relics and other areas of the Cathedral of Santiago, enjoying this special initiative.
