I only knew Santiago from this Civilization IV scenario that I played, where they included it as a city in Spain.

Yes, very obscure.

The pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela is well known indeed! Maybe it is so mostly in Europe?

Likely. It it is probably most well-known in places with waypoints on the route, which can be found far into central Europe, and less so elsewhere.

The Treaty of Zaragoza was the one signed in 1529, but I think the Treaty of Tordesillas is much more well-known (mostly because the Treaty of Zaragoza basically restated Tordesillas and added another line on the opposite side of the world). I agree that the treaty that really divided the world was Tordesillas.

Kind of an odd mix of languages here, with Seville in English but A Coruna in Galician.
