Things to do Hostal de los Reyes Católicos Tour
The Hostal de los Reyes Católicos Tour invites you to explore the Parador of Santiago de Compostela, one of the most important jewels in the city, together with the impressive Cathedral. Our English speaking guide will take you to the inside and will unfold the best-kept secrets.
Our journey starts in Plaza del Obradoiro, in front of the Parador. This building, currently known as Hostal de los Reyes Católicos, was created as a hospital for pilgrims, what says the Latin inscription on the upper frieze of the façade, and it is still preserved in good conditions.
We can also admire the sculptures of Adan, Saint Catherine, St John the Baptist, Eva, Santa Lucia and Maria Magdalena along its Plateresque gothic façade, and the roman arch where we can admire the figures of the twelve apostles. In addition, two huge emblems flank the wall, where the arms of the Kingdom of Castile and the cross in a circle represent the symbol of the Hospital.
Once inside, we will the Royal Chapel, where the daily mass used to take place when it was a hospital. Outside, we will go through the Apostles Courtyards: San Juan, San Marcos, San Lucas and San Mateo. We will also explore the royal halls, the cloisters, the rooms where the patients were attended and we will contemplate the splendid ribbed vault.
The Hostal de los Reyes Católicos Tour is an excellent opportunity to take a walk through the history of the Galician capital and witness the beauty of the Plateresque style in Spain.
