  • A site that is very close to the old town of the city which is worth visiting. It is a quiet Park, with places to sit, walk or lie down. The viewpoint is beautiful. In addition there is a small cafe and various positions of ice cream.

  • Great park at the center of town. Hosts la feria in late July. Lots if fun for kids of all ages.
  • Beautiful park and well maintained. Good place to relax and watch the world go by.

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.
