Santiago de Compostela is the capital city of Galicia in Spain. The city has its origin in the shrine of Saint James the Great, now the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and is the destination of a leading Catholic pilgrimage route since the 9th century. The old town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.
