So you will see the fires of the Apostle from a different perspective
Take place in the Plaza del Obradoiro is a classic to enjoy in front of traditional fires Apostle and the accompanying audiovisual show. But what if you see them leisurely dining on a terrace? And if you do it from the top of a hill watching the city from the top?
A few days of -the fires Sunday night July- 24, many are already preparing for the big day. Those who choose the Plaza del Obradoiro should know that although the fires start at 23:30 hours, you have to get to the place much earlier, because once it is filled, the entrances to the square are closed. In addition, you can not carry large bags or even backpacks for safety reasons. Yes, there you can enjoy the visual spectacle like no other.
While dining on a terrace at Rua do Franco
Another very good plan for them is enjoying a nice dinner on a terrace, next to the show. And what better than traditional Rua do Franco? Pousadas de Compostela we recommend you do so on the terrace A Feira de Entrecercas (which you can enter from the Calexón of Entrecercas or also by the Rúa do Franco, 50). It is our great gastronomic offer for the holidays with a wonderful terrace in the shade of a century-old magnolia tree and in the heart of the historic center.
If you prefer to dine covered, but also in the wine emblematic street of the city, the Rua do Franco, our proposal is completed in the Porta Faxeira restaurant, Tavern O Boteco or Il Pellegrino restaurant specializing in Italian food. And all just a few meters from the party!
From the Ferris wheel
There are also great views from the Alameda, specifically from the Paseo de la Herradura. Although there magic audiovisual show is lost, see the fires of the Apostle from there keeps the charm because you will see them in the heart of the party, with fairground rides and even, if you dare, you can enjoy them from the traditional ferris wheel that installed on top of the mall.
And also on top, but in this case other parks and hills of the city, is also a suitable place to enjoy them. Spectacular is the view of the city from the viewpoint of Fontiñas neighborhood, about a half hour walk from the city center. From there the view is beautiful, where the towers jut from the Cathedral and the background, the Monte Pedroso.
Between lakes and trees
And also from the Monte Pedroso you will see the fires. It is precisely from the other perspective Fontiñas from the neighborhood and from there, in the west, will be in what is considered the most emblematic viewpoint of Santiago. In her lap, Park Granxa do Xesto is not a bad option to enjoy the views, between trees and small artificial lakes.
And we continue with the parks? We recommend the viewpoint of Galeras Park, just 10 minutes from Obradoiro and where the house of the president of the regional government is located. It is one of the most special views of the towers of the cathedral and lets you zoom in, after the fireworks show, the rest of concerts and animation that will complete the evening of July 24.
And, you know, that if, in addition to enjoying the party, you want to stay inside Santiago these days, our hotels all of them located in the historical center can offer the comfort that you need and here you can see all the options that we offer.
