Tickets for two to the Santiago Cathedral’s roof in Spain

Parador de Santiago de Compostela in Spain

Combining history, art and tradition, the goal of pilgrims and the emblem of St. James, the Hostal dos Reis Católicos, in the Plaza do Obradoiro, forms together with the cathedral one of the world’s most remarkable, and most visited, urban settings.  The Hostal, which first saw life as a Royal Hospital in 1499 to house the many pilgrims arriving in Santiago, today still invites the traveler to enjoy this universal and fascinating city.  Considered the oldest hotel in the world, it is also one of the most luxurious and beautiful. It has four extremely beautiful cloisters, elegant public rooms, spectacular bedrooms and a luxurious dining room offering Galician style fish and meats and the classic apple filloa pies and crème brulee.

The Parador is in the old part of the city of Santiago, on Plaza do Obradoiro, which also houses some of the most famous monuments of the city:  the Cathedral, the City Hall and the Colegio de San Xerome.  From A Coruña we reach Santiago by the N-550, via Ordes, or following the A-9, towards Pontevedra. (65 km.).  Both roads lead to Noia, 34 km. from Santiago, Padrón, 22 km. and Pontevedra, 59 km.

 

The Parador has 105 twin bedded rooms, 15 double bedded rooms, 12 single rooms, and 6 suites.   Guestrooms feature telephone, satellite television, TV canal plus, mini bar, heating, air-conditioned living rooms, and more.

In the Hostal there are two different dining areas: the restaurant Dos Reis, select and sedate, and the restaurant Enxebre, with a more informal ambience, offering traditional Galician cooking.  Seafood and fish recently caught in the Atlantic, local meat and cheeses are some of the first quality products on offer, without neglecting our wines and liquors.
