CODE OF GOOD PRACTICES
Click here to watch Santiago de Compostela animated video to disseminate the "Code of Good Practice for Sustainable Tourism".
A collective heritage that we have the right to enjoy and the duty to look after.
A welcoming place that respects diversity, shared by residents and visitors alike, in both the city and the surrounding countryside. Discover it!
Do not be fooled by pseudo-traditions or inappropriate practices.
Purchase handcrafted products in local shops and participate in our intense cultural life.
5. ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY
Deposit rubbish in litter and rubbish bins. Use the free public toilets. Save water and electricity.
6. ACOUSTIC QUALITY
Celebrate your arrival respectfully, not making too much noise. Store your walking stick to prevent noise pollution and damage to the pavement.
7. VISUAL QUALITY
The cityscape surrounding you is of exceptional value: it is not a picnic area or a campsite. Discover Santiago as a gastronomy capital in our magnificent restaurants.
8. PEDESTRIAN PRIORITY
If you come by bike, respect pedestrian areas where you must get off your bike and go on foot. Walk the last metres calmly and sensibly.
Large groups are not exempt from observing traffic regulations.
10. RIGHT TO REST
Santiago features plenty of leisure options: enjoy yourself while respecting those that are resting.
Enjoy the peace and quiet of heritage sites as well as the parks and gardens of this green city.
12. HOSPITALITY Help us to help you. Turismo de Santiago de Compostela is at your disposal.
