ROYAL HOSPITAL, A
REFUGE FOR PILGRIMS AT THE END OF THE 15TH C. Mixture
of history, art and tradition, the dream of pilgrims and an emblem of Santiago,
the 'Hostal Reyes Católicos', located in the Plaza do Obradoiro, forms a
magnificent golden corner with the cathedral, imparting beauty on one of the
most visited regional capitals of the world. The 'Hostal', which originated as a
Royal Hospital in 1499 to give shelter to the numerous travellers making their
way to Santiago, today continues to invite the traveller to enjoy a universal
and fascinating city. Considered to be the oldest hotel in the world, it is also
one of the most luxurious and beautiful. It has four cloisters of immense
beauty, elegant living rooms, spectacular bedrooms and a luxurious dining room
which offers fish and meat dishes cooked 'a la gallega', in addition to the
classical caramelized apple 'filloas' (crepes) and cream.
