Event Details

The largest Galician event of the year is held in Santiago de Compostela on 24 -25th July - the Festival of St. James 25th is a bank holiday in Galicia. At midnight on the eve of the Day of the Apostle, a fantastic fireworks display is held in Obradoiro Square, including the traditional “burning of the Cathedral façade”.On the morning of the 25th a solemn offering is made to the Apostle in the Cathedral, followed by a parade around the streets featuring giant headed figures accompanied by traditional music and concerts in the city’s squares. “Romerías” and parties take place, under a canopy of centuries-old oak trees. The Festival of St.James is an event not to be missed and a great opportunity to visit Santiago during the summer holidays or to finish your pilgrimage in real style.
