The Xunta de Galicia (Galician pronunciation: [??unta ðe ?a?li?ja], "Government of Galicia") is the collective decision-making body of the government of the autonomous community of Galicia, composed of the President, the Vice-President(s) and the specialized ministers (Conselleiros).

The Xunta has at its disposal a vast bureaucratic organization based at Santiago de Compostela, the capital city of Galicia, although it has delegations in a number of locations throughout the country.
