The Cathedral of Santiago of Compostela

The Santiago de Compostela Archcathedral Basilica is an integral component of the Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. The Cathedral became a Spanish Cultural Heritage site in 1896 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.  

The Challenge

To respond to the needs of these visitors, they needed to expand their Services. They also needed to increase the visit to the Cathedral Museum and manage the tour groups. 

The Solution

A space was adapted in the Crypt of the Cathedral, endowed by the parent company of MuseumMate with all the furniture and resources necessary to be the visitor reception centre. In this space we enable the ticket booth to access the Museum and the audioguide service for individual visitors and the group guiding service for organized groups. 

The audioguide offered information about the rich heritage of the Cathedral and guided visitors through the different spaces of the Museum and the Cathedral. Each visitor was given, together with his audioguide, a map of the Temple and the Museum that facilitated the tour and allowed to serve the thousands of users of the Cathedral.
