Stone, greenery and ocean were the main ingredients. Culture and myth acted as engines. Discover with us the layers of our cities. Get the inspiration!Welcome to Galicia!
Galicia contains half of the villages of Spain, over 1.400 kilometres of coastline and the second biggest fishing port of the world, Vigo. Santiago de Compostela, ist capital, is one of the best-maintained historic cities of Europe. The last 20 years meant an intense architectural renovation and the 21st century sets up new challenges such as green strategies and developments of coastlines.
GA Santiago organizes architecture and urbanism guided tours all around Galicia. We are architects and we carefully craft each programme to achieve your expectations.
Tours are available in Spanish, English and German.
