Built in 1499 to serve as a royal hospital, Parador Santiago de Compostela is a jewel containing stunning cloisters, elegant rooms, and a truly spectacular dining room that offers the finest in regional Spanish cuisine. While any room in this Parador is exceptional, the Hostal dos Reis Católicos also features four completely unique rooms with interesting history or one-of-a-kind vistas.
Guests staying at the unique rooms at Parador Santiago are given a bottle of Cava, a fruit basket, and daily newspaper service as well as a special dinner menu that includes fresh local fish and meat as well as traditional pastries, all of which are prepared according to Galician recipes. Come morning, the hotel also serves guests a delicious breakfast in the room.
You’ll feel like a king in the Real “Royal" Suite, which is located on the main façade of the building and overlooks the Praza do Obradoiro. Sitting in the heart of Santiago de Compostela’s city center, the Praza do Obradoiro marks the end of St. James’ Way, the legendary pilgrimage route that stretches across Europe. Each day, hundreds of pilgrims arrive here and make their way to the cathedral, where they receive a certificate that attests to their journey.

The buildings surrounding the square are all marvels of different architectural periods, from the medieval Colexio de San Xerome – currently the home of the city’s university–to the neoclassical Pazo de Raxoi – a palace that currently houses Santiago’s city hall. The suite’s bedroom features a double half tester bed as well as a living room with amble balcony and coffered ceiling, while the full bathroom suite boasts a hydro massage shower.
Another option is the Cardinal Suite, named in honor of the eminent Galician bishop Quiroga Palacias. Housed in one of the finest bedrooms in the hotel, this suite features a stunning Mudéjar coffered ceiling and period furniture ranging from a 17th-century friar’s chair made with golden thread, to a Baroque painting of St. Dorothy. The bedroom’s two double four-poster beds and fireplace will make you feel as if you’re a dream…from which you’d rather not awake!

Santiago is a magical city of almost indescribable beauty, where you will not only look, but you will also feel. In addition to the cathedral and the spectacular Obradoiro and Quintana squares, other sights include Santa María A Real do Sar Collegiate Church. Together with the cathedral, this is the church that has preserved the largest part of its original Romanesque stonework and it has an interior with lovely proportions. There is also the Renaissance Colegio de Fonseca (Fonseca School) and the magnificent San Martiño Pinario Monastery. These are just some of the places well worth visiting in the city’s fine historic district.
The charm and the hustle and bustle of Abastos Market in the morning; the beautifully maintained Alameda Park, which boasts spectacular views of the old quarter; the church, convent and park of San Domingos de Bonaval, home to the Pantheon of Illustrious Galicians; and the green spaces around the capital, extending all the way to the sea, just half an hour away, will guide you through this city brimming with history and beauty. It marks the end of the Camino (Way of St. James) and the start of a one-of-a-kind experience we invite you to enjoy in exceptional accommodations, the Parador de Santiago.
