      A scenic route from Santiago eastward

      by shunra Online Now Apr 16, 2014 at 11:48 AM

      Hello everybody,
      In September we'll make a road trip from Toulouse to Santiago de Compostela, driving roughly along the Camino Aragonés / Camino Francés (Pamplona – Logroño – Burgos – Leon etc).
      Now the question is, how shall we return to Toulouse. We'll probably be fed up with architectural masterpieces. We'll rather be looking for the most beautiful natural scenery.
      Could anybody suggest a route to take?
      Thanks a lot in advance!

      Restoration of Portico of Glory

      by Oleg_D. Online Now Apr 12, 2013 at 4:36 AM

      Dear Travelers,

      Does anybody know about the progress of restoration of the Portico of Glory in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela? When I visited the Cathedral last time in May/June 2012 Portico was covered by the scaffolds because of restoration and it was impossible to see the statues of Jesus, Apostles and Prophets. Has that restoration been finished by now?

      Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

      Sincerely,

      Taxi or private car transfer from Airport to Sarria

      We are four adults arriving at Santiago D.C. Airport around 9 a.m. We are proposing to get to Sarria and are prepared to pay for a taxi or private car transfer. Would the "normal" taxis at the airport take us this far? If not, then are there any reputable companies that we can pre-book with? Failing that, a simple question, how do we get to Sarria from the airport? I will be grateful for any help in this matter. A.

      Hi,

      I have booked 2 flight back home and it seems now that I will not catch the 1st on , but be a few days before the 2nd one already in Santiago !
      So I will take 1 day for the city, BUT what else can I do there in the surrounding as an easy daytrip ??
      A carmuseum would be perfect for me, or maybe you have a better idea ?
      Finisterre - I dont think I will do that, I was walking enough already to get to Santiago...

      by HKC Online Now Mar 17, 2012 at 10:04 AM

      Hello, We are sailing to Vigo mid April. The 7 day cruise has been chosen especially because we stop for a whole day in Vigo and want to see S de C (we hope to return again then by land next holiday).

      We have been reading about the City and would like to visit it on our own instead of booking a cruise coach (which seems to include stops for tea/cakes, souvenir shops, etc.

      Is it possible to get a return trip independent coach etc from Vigo to S de C (or would it be very expensive by taxi)?
      Also any advice on the 'must not miss' things would be very appreciated.
      Many thanks.

    • Driving a Manual vs Automatic

      by Frequentraveler Online Now Nov 8, 2011 at 7:32 PM

      I have a reservation for an automatic car to be pick up at Santiago de Compostela Airport in January for 6 days. The cost is 422 for the six days. I can still make a reservation for the same car with a manual transmission for half the price for what I will be paying for the automatic. This is my situation: I can drive an manual as long as I do not have to go up a hill where there might be a light in the middle of the hill and have to use the clutch and brake pedal. I had a bad experience in Tenerife, Spain and do not want to relive this experience again. However I spent one week in Lisboa, Portugal and rented a manual transmission car and never had a problem with the roads, everything seem to be at level no hills. Can anyone make any recomendations? What driving like in Santiago de Compostela? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
