El tour nocturno del Camino de la Oca pretende poner puesta en valor de los orígenes del juego de la Oca. Mostrar que el tablero de la Oca no es más que una recopilación a menor escala de lo que los peregrinos se encontraban a lo largo del Camino de Santiago.

Cuando comenzó la peregrinación, la mayoría de la gente era analfabeta, hablaban diferentes idiomas, los mapas eran inexistentes y como consecuencia el Camino a Santiago era hostil y peligroso.

La Orden de Los Templarios fueron los encargados de diseñar una auténtica guía para el peregrino con los recursos que contaban en su momento: diseñar un tablero que cada peregrino pudiera memorizar a modo de un “mapa” auténtico del Camino.

La luz del atardecer será el escenario perfecto para descubrir algunas leyendas y personajes que crecieron en esta ciudad. ¿Qué secretos guardan los cruceiros? ¿Dónde vivió una de las primeras feministas españolas? Durante la hora y media que dura la visita tendrás la respuesta a estas preguntas a la vez que disfrutarás de un agradable paseo por las calles empedradas del casco antiguo, que guardan muchas más historias que se irán desvelando a lo largo del recorrido

Good tour to get a few tips on Santiago that you don't usually know about. Unfortunately ours was cut short as the guide had to leave early. It would have been nice to have been informed of this at the time of booking.
