Santiago de Compostela is the medieval centre of Galicia, Spain. It has been declared Cultural Heritage of Mankind, and is the finishing point of the Christian pilgrims' roads to the tomb of the Apostle St.James. Braga, founded by the Celts in 300 B.C. and a Roman administrative centre in 27 B.C., Bracara Augusta, as the Romans named it, combines the religious importance with today's commercial and industrial prosperity.

Up above and dominating the city is the sanctuary of Santa Luzia, with a fantastic view of the town, the river and the ocean.
