In this tour we will depict the ancient district of the city during the very last rays of the sun until the tungsteng lights control the scene. We propose to take pictures of our squares and rúas (ancient streets) while we get to know traditions, rumours and stories of the old Compostela. A very uncommon path through very special light conditions.


Although the tour goes in an unhurried rythm, we will be reaching certain distances, so any confortable footware is welcome. Besides, we have an unpredictable wheather, so you would better not skimp on jackets, specially if you are cold-natured.

This visit consists on practicing long exposure photography mainly. The only thing we consider as ideal materials to be bringing to the tour, is a tripod or monopode to achive sharper images in low-light conditions. Regarding the camera, remember that the equipment at your service is perfectly fine. This photowalks are all about making the most of our gear!

Ideally we will try to bring the lightest photographic gear possible, including smartphones or tablets as great gadgets to take our pictures of the city. If you decide to bring your reflex camera or mirrorless, It is interesting to use a wide-angle lens for this tour, speacially to capture the heights and environment of the spots. However, it is not strictly required to follow our recommedation of course, because the equipment you have and choose fo the tour will be perfectly fine!

And what if It rains?

Didn’t you know? In Santiago It can always rain! It is a great idea bringing a raincoat and something to protect your equipment from the possible inclemencies of the weather. Each visitor is fully responsible for the integrity of their own gear during the visit. In the case of weak and intermittent rain, the visit may not be cancelled, so please, before not showing up we appreciate you let us know.
