Santiago de Compostela is a mid-sized city located in northwestern Spain.

It best known for its historic city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, well as the magnificent cathedral that dominates it.

The city is considered one of the most important places in Catholicism because it is reputed to be the place where St. James, one of the twelve Apostles, is buried.

In addition to the town itself, the area is known for its Camino de Santiago – an historic pilgrimage to the city that is followed by thousands of people every year – on foot, bicycle, or motorized vehicle. This route is its own UNESCO World Heritage Site listing.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
