Santiago de Compostela, Spain
Monday. Guided visit and welcome cocktail
On monday evening, you can follow a guided visit to the Cathedral and it surroundings, that will introduce you to the origins and history of Santiago de Compostela in the depths of the Early Middle Age. Meeting point is the venue's entrance at 19:00. After that, at 20:30, in the gardens of the venue's cloister, a welcome cocktail will be served.
On wednesday afternoon we will pause for an excursion. If the weather is good we will visit the Galician coast, stopping at some panoramic places and ending in Finisterre, "the cape of the end of the world", a true icon, where many pilgrims finish their walk. After visiting the town, we'll do a 1 hour light trekking to reach the cape along a superb landscape. We will leave at 15:00 and be back by 21:00. Bring cap and sunglasses, if sunny, the ocean shines.
On thursday, the conference dinner will take place in the Hotel NH Collection. The top floor has a dinning hall with magnificent views from the terrace. We will meet there at 20.30 for a wine tasting, and sit down at around 21:00.
