Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Santiago de Compostela University
(Santiago de Compostela, Spain)

Locals do not usually travel by car because they prefer the smaller, more agile vehicles like scooters to get around the city. Visitors are discouraged from bringing their cars because the streets can become very congested.

Travel by Air

People travelling to Santiago de Compostela by air arrive at the Lavacolla International Airport, the city's main hub for air transport. However, most international airlines do not fly there directly. Tourists from outside Europe have to transfer planes before they can arrive in the city.

Travel by Trains and Rail Travel

Visitors can take the train to get to the city. Santiago de Compostela's main railway station is the Renfe Station located in the Rua do Horreo.

The city's coach station located in San Caetano provides regular coach service to other Spanish municipalities. Some coaches can travel even as far as Germany.

Car Hire and Road Transport

Car hire is popular in Santiago and there certainly is some pretty countryside in Galicia to explore. Traffic and parking isn't too challenging except in the old town area. Booking online is the best way to secure good rates.

Car Parking

The lack of spacious parking lots is another reason visitors are discouraged from driving their cars while in Santiago de Compostela. Many of the city streets are one-way, and parking on curbs and roadsides is usually prohibited.

Travel by Taxis

Taxis are common in Santiago de Compostela, but most people do not take them because of the traffic congestion.
