|Beautiful Santiago known for the corpse of St James Apostol - transported from the Holy Land to
the far side of Spain by two deciples after his execution in Jerusalem in AD44. In 813 the grave
was supposedly rediscovered by a religious hermit following a guiding star (hence
'Compostela', field of the star). The story gained strength in the following centuries, and
Santiago de Compostela became a goal for Christian pilgrims from all over Western Europe.
The Cathedral and Plaza of buildings were built in the 18th century to honer the Christian
beliefs. Narrow Streets offer shops, restaurants and Tapas Bars.
