CAMINO DE SANTIAGO. Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela

Daniel Esparza - published on 11/29/17

From the “Pórtico De La Gloria” to the tomb of the Apostle, in 360 degrees.

Few virtual tours on the internet really meet the expectations of those who, whether driven by devotion, a certain academic interest or by legitimate curiosity, seek them out.

But this virtual tour of the Cathedral of Compostela is, by far, exceptional.

With 360-degree full-screen views, clear and accessible information on every detail of the Cathedral and an exquisite musical selection, it provides the virtual visitor with an immersive experience, featuring the beauty of the surrounding squares, the famous Pórtico de la Gloria, the Puerta Santa (“Holy Door”), and the tomb of the Apostle himself.
