Hostal de Los Reyes Católicos Guided Tour

74 reviews | 602 travellers
The guide's explanations about the building, its architecture and its history are very interesting. Only way to enter the hotel without staying there. Many details that the guide made us notice that if they do not show them to you, they will be overlooked.

Hostal de Los Reyes Católicos Guided Tour

We will meet up at 11 am in front of the Hostal de los Reyes Católicos, in the Plaza del Obradoiro square. This old hospital, which has been converted into a hotel, is one of the best examples of Spain's ornate 'plateresque' architectural style of the 15th century. It was constructed by the Catholic Monarchs to provide shelter to pilgrims who, on completing their journey, were tired, and often ill.

As we tour the different halls and rooms, you will hear all about the original function of the hospital as both accommodation and healthcare. We will pass through the four interconnected interior courtyards which feature beautiful water fountains until we reach the royal chapel where the poet Rosalía de Castro was baptized.

We will continue our tour visiting the sacristy of the church, the stairs of Bethlehem, where the old delivery room was, and we'll end this tour in the old stables. You'll feel like you've traveled to another era in history.
