Compostela has in its streets, squares and buildings a historical and artistic legacy that few cities in the world can boast. However, not all of this centuries-old monumental heritage can be visited throughout the year. The Invisible Heritage Week is a cycle programmed by the Department of Culture of the City Council of Compostela that opens the doors of treasures, usually closed, and designs guided tours for small groups so that its users keep in memory a unique cultural experience.
A total of 638 people will be able to enjoy the 50 visits that the SPI is going to make to 10 places, including two secret visits that will take place on the evening of 16 September and a nocturnal tour of the most hidden part of Compostela, as part of the Heritage Night celebration on 17 September. In addition, the Convent of San Francisco, the chapel and cemetery of the Brotherhood of the Rosary in San Domingos de Bonaval and the University Historical Archive are three other new additions to the SPI programme. Together with them, in response to the great demand for certain spaces in previous editions, the Cathedral Tribune, the Construction Labour Foundation, the Faculty of Geography and History, the College of Fonseca and, on the afternoon of Wednesday 14 September, the Compostela springs of Ponte Mantible and Fonte Blanca will be visited.
