This morning we take a guided walking tour of Santiago including a visit to the magnificent cathedral, a stunning architectural landmark with Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque features. We also visit the important local squares, churches and buildings around the cathedral.
Please note that the Cathedral in Santiago is currently undergoing a major renovation until at least 2021. We will still visit the interior of the Cathedral, the museum, cloister and the tomb of the Apostle however it is not possible to take a tour of the rooftops. The mass have been moved to the nearby San Francisco church. The Portal of Glory has recently been re-opened and can be visited, paying a separate entrance fee (please discuss with your Explore leader if you would like to book this in advance).
The afternoon is free to wander the city's narrow streets discovering some of the city's other architectural treasures, and enjoy the local food and wine. It is also possible to take an optional excursion to Cape Finisterre, however this is a full day excursion so you would have to miss the city tour. (B)
