Royal Hospital, late 15th century pilgrims' hostel

Combining history, art and tradition, the goal of pilgrims and the emblem of St. James, the Hostal dos Reis Católicos, in the Plaza do Obradoiro, forms together with the cathedral one of the world’s most remarkable, and most visited, urban settings.

The Hostal, which first saw life as a Royal Hospital in 1499 to house the many pilgrims arriving in Santiago, today still invites the traveller to enjoy this universal and fascinating city.

Considered the oldest hotel in the world, it is also one of the most luxurious and beautiful. 

It has four extremely beautiful cloisters, elegant public rooms, spectacular bedrooms and a luxurious dining room offering Galician style fish and meats and the classic apple filloa pies and crème brulee. 

Specialities and traditional dishes

For dessert, filloas de manzana (apple pie) and crème brulee.

In the Hostal there are two different dining areas: the restaurant Dos Reis, select and sedate, and the restaurant Enxebre, with a more informal ambience, offering traditional Galician cooking.

Seafood and fish recently caught in the Atlantic, local meat and cheeses are some of the first quality products on offer, without neglecting our wines and liquors.
