This magnificent historical hotel occupies a privileged location right beside the Cathedral of Santiago in the Obradoiro Square.

Originally built as a royal hospital in 1499 to accommodate pilgrims travelling to Santiago and considered the oldest hotel in Spain, it has now been converted into a luxurious 5-star Parador.

Behind the Plateresque facade you will discover four beautiful cloisters, elegant rooms and a luxurious dining room and a museum with more than 140 works by artists including Martinez Novillo, Álvaro Delgado and Menchu Gal.

A stay here means a visit to a truly unique and exclusive location.
