Very helpful staff, clean and super comfortable rooms, extremely close to the cathedral and to the restaurants of the old city, walking distance from the more modern shopping area. We were travelling with bicycles and they assigned us a secure space in the hotel to store them. Right in front of the Credentials office for pelgrims, met interesting guests. Would not recommend to dine at the hotel's restaurant, there are much better and tastier choices in the area. The breakfast was great.

Yummy!

... A friend of mine I met i Gijon suggested I leave my backpack and take a small backpack for the three day hike. After spending three nights in santiago I was ready to move on. That evening it rained quite a lot and in the morning too. I gathered my belongings and left my backpack at a local library for 3€ for three days. I brought a poncho as well and started the hike. The starting point was 89 kilometres. It was raining a lot but I met a few other walkers also. As ...
... is a hell of a long way for European pilgrims. To make it easier, basilicas were built over the tombs of Peter and Paul in Rome, so that the European pilgrims did not have to walk half their life to get there. The pilgrims brought gifts to their saint, in the belief that he would look after them.....forever! The city accepted these gifts on behalf of their saint. They got rich, no ********, there was serious income to be had from a pilgrimage site! Not just the ...
... our 3rd floor window. It wasn't too bad until their voices picked up around 2:30am singing Wild Mountain Thyme "la-la-la ... and we'll all go together, to pull wild mountain thyme, all around the bloomin' heather. Will ya go lassie go?" Of course my brain decides to engage now that it recognizes one of my favorite Irish tunes. Oh yes, wide awake at 2:30 humming align with the ongoing party downstairs. Ah, the perils of the Camino... ;)
