What to see, do and visit in and around Santiago de Compostela with your rental car

A good Santiago de Compostela car rental service can be the difference between enjoying the city to the max or not. What's more, the freedom a car gives you opens up the door to the possibility of visiting the surrounding area without having to wait around for public transport. So, how can you take advantage of all these benefits? Let's take a look.

Santiago de Compostela Airport

The Santiago–Rosalía de Castro Airport is located in the vicinity of Santiago de Compostela, in the province of La Coruña. If you have a car, it is very easy to get from the airport to Santiago city centre; just take the A-54 or the N-634. In the first case, you can also take the SC-20 by-pass. However, it takes roughly the same time no matter which road you take; less than 20 minutes. It is well-connected to the rest of Spain and abroad. In Spain, there are connections to Alicante, Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona, Almeria, Gran Canaria, Menorca, Bilbao and Seville, among others. It connects with Italy through Bergamo and Bologna. It flies to other cities in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Galicia has one of Spain's most breathtaking landscapes. You've probably already heard about its forests, coastline, mountains and cities, and how great a place it is to drive around. It is undeniable that this is a region with something special that comes across in each and every one of its villages, which are easy to reach by car. Having said that, Santiago de Compostela is the real stand-out. How else could one explain the thousand-year-old legendary Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, which still attracts millions of people? Of course, there is no better way to enjoy your trip to Galicia than with a rental car. It's the best way to enjoy everything it has to offer at your own pace.

However, if you really want to enjoy this destination, you need to know how to squeeze the most out of your visit. How to go about it? With a rental car you can get to know the city like the back of your hand as well as travel to all the places of interest in the surrounding area, as well elsewhere in Galicia, with peace of mind and at your own pace.

Road trip around Santiago de Compostela

Planning a road trip in Santiago de Compostela is extremely straightforward. We recommend taking the well-known Rúa da Ensinanza as a point of reference. From there you can reach the city's main spots by car. As it surrounds the city's entire old quarter, it is the perfect way to access the city's main tourist spots.

What's more, you can take Rúa dos Basquiños as the axis of the city, so you can visit the city's entire newly-built area.

Road trip around the surrounding area

As well as the above, if you hire a car in Santiago de Compostela, you'll be able to travel out of the city to visit the surrounding areas. You can plan a trip to discover the best spots in Galicia, among which the following stand out:

  • The Tower of Hercules in A Coruña
  • Pontevedra
  • Ferrol
  • O Cebreiro
  • Sil Canyon in Ribeira Sacra (Orense)
  • Cabo de Finisterre
  • As Catedrais beach

Sil Canyon in Ribeira Sacra

Santiago's location makes it a starting point for other roadtrips across the north and northwest of the Iberian Peninsula. Regions of Spain such as Asturias, Cantabria or Castille y León, or Portuguese gems such as Aveiro, Porto, are just a stone's throw away with your Centauro car.

Gastronomy in Santiago de Compostela

The gastronomy of Santiago de Compostela is renowned the world over thanks, above all, to the quality and flavour of its fish and seafood; highlights include octopus, squid, turbot and goose barnacles.
