Your tour will begin with a ride to Sobrado to see Santa Maria de Sobrado dos Monxes, a monastery from the 10th century that was later abandoned. It was re-inhabited in the 12th century and serves as a great place to visit and take a step back in history. A series of events throughout the centuries resulted in the monastery’s demise, but in 1954, reconstruction began and the monastery was whole again by 1966. It is the jewel of the Renaissance and Baroque eras in Galicia, and it is still inhabited by monks. You’ll then move ahead to Melide, where you will get a walking stick and enjoy a walk along meadows, farms, a eucalyptus forest and an old stone bridge over a creek. This atmosphere creates the perfect mood to visit Camino de Santiago in Galicia. Once you arrive at a nearby village, you will board your motor coach and head to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and be welcomed with some tasty tapas. Afterward, your guide will take you around the cathedral and explain the interesting details inside. You will have some free time to explore the church on your own, and then you will return to your ship.
