Why not come for a walk with Sean & Tiernan along the streets that the Pilgrims follow reaching the spectacular Cathedral of Santiago! Santiago de Compostela is a must-see when you visit, Galicia, Spain. It is practically impossible, to sum up all the history, legends, and monuments of Santiago on a virtual tour, but we will give you a chance to see up close the old town streets and the exterior of the Cathedral visiting all the Plazas (Squares). We might even have a surprise in store going right up the Holy Door that opens up only on a Holy Year (Xacobeo) which is the case for this year 2021 (and 2022 has been extended due to Covid). The Holy Year occurs when St. James Day, 25th of July falls on a Sunday. Learn with us the rituals that pilgrims do when arriving at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Ending our virtual tour in a park with a panoramic view of the old town and the towers of the Cathedral. What better way to end a visit to this monumental city!
Far from just reading out of tour guide books, Sean O’Rourke has immersed himself in his adopted country (Galicia, Spain) and truly wants you to understand and enjoy its culture. He personally guides their specialized small group historic, gourmet food & wine tours in Galicia. Sean is well versed in the various topics covered on the tour such as Celtic Hill-forts and music, the religious pilgrimage to Santiago, Galician-Roman-Celtic history, wine making, wine tasting, Galician modern & traditional cuisine, etc. Sean’s travels have taken him throughout Europe and Britain extensively. His interest into the Spanish culture has given him the ability to speak fluently in Spanish. Sean would be glad to translate and help with some basic vocabulary while on your vacation in Galicia, Spain. One of Sean’s many pastimes is the study of Ancient Celtic history, Galicia and it’s connection to the other Celtic nations (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and Isle of Man) has been his latest project and would love to share with you all the legends and stories of Galicia. Sean is Canadian, but of Scottish & Irish roots, alongside his wife Angie who is Galician, and with their son Tiernan, (Following in his Dad's footsteps!) who is new to the travel world but comes with lots of energy and new ideas backed by 4 years of studying Tourism in Galicia, Spain. They make up a great trio team (Eat & Walkabout) offering unique food, wine and walking tours throughout GALICIA, SPAIN’S HIDDEN CELTIC PARADISE!
