Santiago de Compostela is a small and historic city, with a population of around 80,000. The centre of the old town area is particularly compact and surrounds the 18th-century Catedral del Apóstol. Much of this area is well pedestrianised and contains the majority of the city's main monuments, shops, hotels and restaurants.
A modern shopping centre can be found on the southern side of Santiago de Compostela, bounded by the Praza de Galicia. Santiago's train station lies just a short walk from the city centre, to the north-east, with the bus station being located nearby. The city's tourist information office can be found along the Rúa do Vilar, alongside the regional center.
