Description

Parador de Santiago de Compostela  - One of the world´s grandest 5* hotels, the Parador de Santago de Compostela is located in the very heart of Santiago de Compostela, in the Plaza del Obradoiro adjacent to the magnificent cathedral. The Parador, which was the old Royal Hospice, was built by order of the Catholic Monarchs King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella as a refuge for poor pilgrims. It opened its doors in 1499 after nearly ten years of elaborate planning and construction and continued to function as a hospital until 1953.

The building itself is a veritable museum along Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque lines.  Outstanding features of the Parador de Santiago de Compostela include the Plateresque doorway, the inner courtyards and the chapel. Furnished with antiques and works of art, most rooms look out on four arcaded patios with fountains. The public rooms are elegant while throughout the entire building there is a strong sense of the past revisited.

All bedrooms are equipped to the high standards you would expect from a hotel of this category. Guests may enjoy traditional Galician cuisine in the parador's exquisite restaurant, an impressive stone vaulted room. The excellent location of this Parador, right in the centre of Santiago, makes it possible to enjoy on-foot all this city has to offer. Within minutes of the hotel there are a whole host of restaurants, bars and cafes.

Please note that this Parador is often heavily booked, so an early reservation is essential to guarantee availability.
