Santiago de Compostela

Pilgrimage Sites of Santiago de Compostela

Believed by many to be the burial place of the apostle St. James, the city of Santiago de Compostela, capital of Galicia in northwestern Spain, has been one of the most significant Catholic pilgrimage sites for nearly a millennium; after Rome and Jerusalem, it’s considered among the holiest cities in the Christian world. On your visit, you’ll walk part of the “Way of St. James,” discovering some of the revered sites, churches and shrines that pilgrims have visited throughout the centuries, and the sacred 13th-century Cathedral Santiago de Compostela.

Pintxos tasting tours

Sampling pintxos in Bilbao and San Sebastián

Pintxos – the traditional tasty treats typically enjoyed as appetizers or snacks in bars throughout northern Spain and the Basque country – are so named for the “spike” (a skewer or a toothpick) that holds their ingredients to a slice of bread, and distinguishes them from their tapas cousins. You’ll have opportunities to sample some of the best pintxos in town on tasting tours with local experts in Bilbao and San Sebastián.

Dinner at Château Kirwan in Bordeaux

A Tauck Exclusive dinner at a historic winery in Bordeaux

The roots of Château Kirwan, a historic estate winery in the Margaux appellation of France’s Bordeaux region, go back to its establishment in the 18th century by Irish shopkeeper Mark Kirwan following his marriage to the daughter of English merchant Sir John Collingwood. Kirwan’s vineyards flourished, producing wine classified as “second rank grand crux.” Since 1925, the winery has been operated by the Schÿler family, whose eighth generation has brought Château Kirwan into the 21st century… where you’ll experience it firsthand with a walk through its cellars and a Tauck Exclusive dinner.
