Your guided visit reveals why this is one of the world's most famous cathedrals, filled with Romanesque sculptures, multi-tiered bell towers, porticoes, cloisters and portals. See and experience the highlights of the cathedral's breathtaking interior, including the lofty barrel-vaulted nave, the air thick with heady incense, the golden altar and the crypt housing St James’ remains.
Have free time to have a traditional lunch of octopus or seafood in Santiago (own expense) and explore Santiago's UNESCO World-Heritage-listed old town.
After your visit to Santiago de Compostela, get back in your air-conditioned coach and travel to the town of Viana do Castelo in northern Portugal. The town's pre-Roman citadel atop Mt Santa Luzia dates back to the Mesolithic era. Here, pay a visit to the Basilica of St Luzia, whose design was inspired by Montmartre's Sacre Coeur in Paris.
Take a drive through the city center before returning to Porto, where your day trip concludes.

A memorable day trip provided by Living Tours. Our guide Elsa was brilliant extremely knowledgably and provided a comprehensive commentary as the tour progressed. The cathedral in Santiago de Compostela is a must to visit , we were lucky enough to arrive in time for the pilgrims mass and see the enormous thurible being swung. We then travelled on to Viana to see the Basilica of Santa Luzia Viana do Castelo before having the opportunity to go into the city centre. An extremely enjoyable and informative day even through there was lot of travelling involved.
