This square is named after the Santiago Cathedral's Romanesque portal, the Porta das Praterías or "Silversmiths Portal," and currently the entrance to the Cathedral. To the right of the portal is the 70m-tall Torre del Reloj (Clock Tower) and to the left, the Treasure Tower. On the southern side of the square is the Casa do Cabildo, which is only 15 feet deep and designed in 1758 mostly for decorative purposes. Indeed, it is a beautiful example of baroque architecture and was restored in 2011. Reportedly, the building inspired Ramón María del Valle-Inclán (a giant of Spain’s modern prose) as he wrote his story “My Sister Antonia.” On the eastern side of the square is the former Bank of Spain building (1948), which after major restoration in 2004 now houses a museum dedicated to pilgrims.

The plaza is the destination for so many pilgrims following the way of St. James. There is beauty in the buildings and in the pride and happiness of the pilgrims arriving there after their long journeys.
