(noun) a solitary wanderer

Regardless of how many people accompany us, a journey is a very personal experience and the experiences you make are highly individual and unique. Any trip, whether short or long, far away or near is inimitable, a special experience, hence it should be treated like that. And that is our aim at Solivagant: to offer you an authentic, fun and informative insight into the history and culture of Santo Domingo de la Calzada in guided walks in small groups and personal atmosphere.

The walking tour

Join me on a walking tour through the town of Santo Domingo de la Calzada, an ancient and important stop on the way to Santiago. During the tour we will go back to the times of Domingo Garcia the founder of the town and dive into the history of this ancient place, get to know the legends, culture and traditions. We will walk through the old town of Santo Domingo, see the town`s most important buildings as well as the medieval city walls.

Every day
Contact me in order to arrange a tour at a time that suits you best.

The tours will take place, rain or shine, so please come prepared. The tour will only be cancelled in case of extreme weather conditions and that will be announced here on the homepage.

From 1 hour to 2 hours approx. (with many opportunities to sit down during the tour) – depending on how much time you have to explore the town.

The price depends on the number of participants and the duration of the tour.

Reservations in advance are required because if there are no bookings one day, most probably I will not show up at the meeting point. Or if there are too many ‘walkers’ that day, it is possible that you can`t join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your walk now via the contact form, by e-mail ( ) or call/whatsapp (+34 627 948 568)
