  • Magnificent building of Alvaro Siza, well integrated in the surroundings of the monastery of Santo Domingo de Bonaval. Exhibitions which according to the tastes of each one can be more or less interesting. In any case as the visit is free, it is worth visiting them to get to know the building inside.

  • If you want something else near the casco historico, come to the Museum. It is a modern architecture and contemporary exhibitions.

  • Great exhibition. Not too busy.
  • *FREE* entrance. It's modern architecture hosts contemporary artists from all over the world exhibiting their works of art and multidisciplinary projects. Exhibitions are renewed quarterly and has a bookstore with a neat selection of books and a restaurant with a terrace in Bonaval park next to the Museo do Pobo Galego.
  • I had one of the best meals of my life in the restaurant round the back of this museum. It was in a peaceful and beautiful garden round the back, we had met the chef earlier on the camino, he was so friendly, and in the restaurant came out to check we were enjoying our food and chat. As I said amazing food, we had a butter bean and lettuce salad and chargrilled octopus...simple food, but so delicious and perfect for the environment, traditional Galician and modern. I could never recreate such delicious food at home.
  • Not the best Alvaro Siza building but sometimes they have nice expositions (I saw three and was never disappointed)
  • Not recommended

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.
