of the most beautiful of all Spanish cities, Santiago de Compostela has been a
travellers destination for so long that it boasts the oldest hotel in the world
the Hostal dos Reis Catlicos. The city's importance in the history of Christianity
is such that it is the third holiest site in Christendom, after Jerusalem and
Rome. A national monument, Santiago de Compostelas artistic and historical importance
was confirmed when, in 1993, the entire city was made a UNESCO World Heritage
Santiago de Compostela remains an exquisitely
preserved medieval cathedral town, centred on the shrine of the apostle James,
after whom the city is named. The winding narrow streets of the Old Quarter are
built from local granite and on clear days, the warm and golden stone glows in
the sunlight. Even on the more frequent rainy days, the facades glisten beguilingly
the Praza do Obradoiro, with the great Baroque faade of the Cathedral, is especially
glorious. The entire Old Quarter is a honeycomb of architectural charm, perfect
for exploring on foot.
