You will go through Franco street, one of the most important areas in the old town, full of restaurants, and you will get to the Palace of Fonseca, one of the buildings belonging to the University of Santiago de Compostela.

Enter Obradoiro Square, where you will be amazed by the main façade of the Cathedral and its towers. You will learn about the history of the Cathedral and the pilgrimage in Santiago de Compostela, as well as about the different buildings that surround the square.
