All our Galicia collections:

As well as being Galicia's capital, Santiago de Compostela is also one of the world's great pilgrimage destinations, a magical city, of stone, arcaded streets and numerous beautiful churches and cathedrals. Many of the best places to stay in Galicia can be found here, but there are plenty further afield too.

But your pilgrimage into Galicia needn't stop there. Venture coastward to a region of cliffs, beaches, and arguably Spain's best seafood restaurants. Explore the lush interior with its smattering of stone farming villages and vineyards - producing more of Spain's famous bounty.

Or visit some of the region's other cultural hubs, including A Coruña, home of the Tower of Hercules. A stroll through almost any of Galicia's towns of cites will be a rewarding, historic experience, and also a rewarding one for the gourmet. But this is also a great country to drive around, with some exceptionally beautiful views.

But be aware it's a popuiar destination during the summer months. So if you want to book one of the best places to stay in Galicia in July or August, you'll need to be organised and book ahead. Otherwise go in the quieter months when it'll feel like you've got the place to yourself.
