Hostal Suso is surrounded by streets and places historically and culturally recognized. Just outside the Hostal we find the Santiago Tourist Office. Then, you arrive at the Praza das Praterías where you will meet the majesty of our Cathedral (1075-1211) and the towers 74 meters tall. Inside, you could admire the nave, the Portic of the Glory , visit the tomb of the Apostle behind the main chapel, where the crypt is and if you are lucky you can see how they fly the Botafumeiro. Leaving the front door you can see the Obradoiro Square. Here are The Hostel of the Catholic Kings and the Raxoi Palace.
Praza da Quintana is another must see. Rua da Conga and turning left onto Rúa de Altamira, we arrived at the Praza de Abastos. You will meet our market if is not Sunday. It’is full of products from the land and sea. You can walk down Calderería street and reach Rúa das Orfas. Rúa Nova is another focus for its beautiful arcades and stores with craft products in many cases. If you are looking to eat well, in Rúa do Franco you can taste Galician cuisine or have a glass of wine as is usual.
Toural Square, Azabachería, Porta Faxeira, Rua da Troia, San Paio, Preguntoiro … the historic center of Santiago is a place to loose yourself enjoying their endless streets, monuments and museums that will make your stay worth it.
