How To Arrive  

The international Airport of Lavacolla (phone: (34) 981-59-75-50) has connections to several continents. It is located only 10 kms away from the city centre. This short distance goes through a modern motorway. At the airport there is a bus service to General Pardiñas street , and also a taxi stand.
There are other nearby airports, with international flights, in A Coruña (60 km), Vigo (90 km) and Porto (220 Km).

The following companies operate to/from Santiago de Compostela Airport:
Cervantes Fountain
Platerias Square

At the very centre of the city we also find a railway station (phone: (34) 981-52-02-02), connected to the main Galician and peninsular cities. Two daily trains link with Madrid (Talgo and Expreso). A single change is all that is required to reach, on a daily basis, Barcelona , Hendaya and Paris, and almost all national destinations of importance.
There are frequent communications along the Atlantic corridor from A Coruña and Vigo.


The entire Atlantic corridor is linked by motorway or dual carriageway. The A-9 toll road joins A Coruña, Santiago de Compostela, Pontevedra and Vigo . This toll road also extends southwards to Portugal (via Porto and Lisbon ).

From Madrid , there are two possible routes. Via the north, by means of the Northwest Dual Carriageway (formerly the N-6), which links with the aforementioned A-9 motorway 20 km from A Coruña. Via the south, by means of the Rías Baixas Dual Carriageway, which crosses the province of Ourense and links, just before Vigo, with the A-9 again. You can also exit the dual carriageway at Ourense and travel to Compostela along the N-525 road.
