Monasterio de San Martin Pinario, Santiago de Compostela

A Benedictine monastery, Monasterio de San Martin Pinario is the second-largest religious structure in Santiago, and has been largely rebuilt so that little of the original structure remains. Look for the cloisters inside the church, as well as the altarpiece that tells the stories of Benedictine saints. The gardens are especially peaceful: you can have some tea or read a book there. Modern rooms and facilities are available for those who wish to stay overnight at the monastery.

    You can find it near the Cathedral, one of its sides. It may not be very appealing from the outside but it is a very beautiful building.

    Located next to the Cathedral so it could go unnoticed, but you must visit it if want to see something beautiful and unique.

    It was a long climb up a lot of steps after a 7-day walk on the Camino de Santiago. The reasonable price more than doubled for the weekend. A cheap restaurant and a computer in the basement. Marvelous...  more »

  • Incredible value and immaculate rooms in an ancient monastery steps from the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Not many places you go have their own cloister! Dinner was in the ancient refectory and was delicious. At 10 euros for 3 courses including a bottle of wine, it is unbeatable.
  • Charming Monastery full of historic character. The rooms are basic but comfortable and well maintained. The Church is really worth visiting and its Museum is fascinating.
  • This place is one the best for pilgrims finishing the Camino,private room w/bathroom and a breakfast to remember for sure,it's buffet style w/NoLimit Refills
  • A beautiful place to finish our Camino pilgrimage and contemplate what we have done in serene surroundings.
  • Hospedería San Martín Pinario at Santiago offers a great dinner menu - probably the best deal in town (all you can drink house wine and three course menu for the average Pilgrim menu price). As a hotel - it's "okay" (not amazing and not cheap)

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.
