  Tourist Information Office, Santiago de Compostela
by suvanki

This is the Main (City)Tourist office in Santiago de Compostela - A good place to start off your visit - friendly, helpful staff (the staff I encountered spoke good English, so useful for me, with my VERY limited Spanish), free maps, advice about places to see/things to do.

This is where you hire your Mp3 player for the guided walk of Santiago de Compostela, which I found to be very useful and interesting (please see my guided walk tip for more info)

Guide books and post cards etc for sale. Bus timetables for Airport and neighbouring towns etc.

Winter opening 0900 - 1400 and 1600 - 1900 hrs

Holy Week and High Season 0900 - 2100hrs

There are 2 other TI offices on this street;
The Regional tourist office at No 43
and the Xacobeo office at No 32 (for information about the Camino de Santiago

I called in here again at my recent visit to enquire about buses to get me to that evenings Bruce Springsteen concert. The staff again, were very helpful, and gave me the correct information that I needed.
