City of Stone

As the site of the sacred cathedral that marks the end of the pilgrimage route of the famous St. James’ Way, Santiago de Compostela hosts thousands of travelers each year, fostering an eccentric, bohemian vibe that blends with the city’s historical charm.

The city is said to never sleep, boasting a significant university population that makes for a vibrant nightlife.

Where to stay in Santiago de Compostela

Lodging in the city's old district is the most scenic option. Some hotels even offer rooms in renovated historical buildings near the cathedral. Consider a stay in Monte do Gozo, a small town just outside the city that offers 2,000 beds to weary pilgrims.
