Travel Mail: Pilgrim’s Progress to Santiago de Compostela

Santiago de Compostela in the north west of Spain, one of the world’s great pilgrimage sites as the final resting place of St James, is also a fabulous city break destination with history, culture and mouth-watering cuisine (particularly if you like octopus). While the area hit global headlines with the tragic rail crash of July 24, take a look at my feature on the Travel Mail website – it is a city break destination I can recommend and with idyllic coastline, great beaches and historic towns across the region, you may wish to stay longer.
