The hotel was built as a royal hospital in 1499 to accommodate pilgrims traveling to Santiago. Today, it continues to invite visitors to enjoy a city that is as universal as it is fascinating. Inside this Parador Museum, considered the oldest hotel in the world, you will discover four beautiful cloisters, elegant rooms, spectacular guest rooms and a luxurious dining room that offers fish and meat prepared in the Galician style, along with classic apple filloas (a type of crêpe) and crème brûlée.

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.

Both restaurants offer a menu based on traditional Galician cuisine, with ingredients that retain their natural flavor, prepared in an exquisite contemporary style. The Parador’s kitchen cooks for a wide variety of diners: pilgrims who come for a meal, pilgrims staying at the hotel, guests at events and business meals. Yet they all delight in dishes created using fish and seafood from the rias of Galicia, beef and vegetables paired with traditional cheeses such as O Cebreiro, and exquisite desserts like filloas (crêpes) filled with apple compote and crème brûlée or traditional tarta de Santiago (almond cake).

The Parador’s breakfast is almost as emblematic as the hotel itself, as is its house specialty, caldeirada dos reis, a stew made with the best ingredients from the ria, including lobster, scallops and turbot. Both Enxebre do Hostal and Restaurante dos Reis of course offer traditional caldo gallego (bean stew), available all year, succulent beef sirloin, and cockles and octopus prepared in the classic style. There are also the famous Galician wines—Ribeiro, Albariño and Ribeira Sacra—made at local wineries with great dedication and attention to detail.

If Santiago marks the end of the Way of St. James for you, you might be interested to know that you can enjoy a free meal at this luxury hotel. According to a tradition dating from the time when the Royal Hospital became a hotel, the first ten pilgrims who cross the threshold of the Parador each day are given a free lunch (served in the Parador’s staff dining room).
