What our students said about Santiago de Compostela


Rating: 3/5

Beautiful city with a friendly atmosphere. Nice people, good food and overall affordable. Just be aware that it could take a while before getting used to their rhythm of living! The vegetation is really verdant. Expect some rainy days!


Rating: 4/5

Probably a good place to study because the climate encourages indoor activities, like study!

The architecture and atmosphere of the city with a strong local character are alive with history and visitors often feel like they’ve taken a step back in time when they come here.
