We stayed here for one night at the end of the Camino. It was an absolute privilege to stay in such a beautiful historic building. We enjoyed walking round looking at the internal courtyards and reading about the history.
Our room was lovely, though hilariously the maids tried to come in to turn down the beds around 10.15 when we were already in bed - we had been up since dawn and cycled 50k so weren't on Spanish time.
The buffet breakfast was generous and well-staffed (unlike the experience of others and unlike our subsequent experience in the Baiona parador where breakfast was chaotic).
