This is my third visit to Santiago. This time I walked in via the Camino de Santiago and after having stayed in lesser accommodations, I appreciated the simple elegance of the Parador. Met by mi esposa, the luxury of the Parador was a welcome contrast to weeks on the Camino. This Parador does not disappoint and I almost felt overwhelmed by the luxury. It is simply a superb place to stay in Santiago. The staff is excellent, attentive and ready to assist at the drop of a scallop shell. The rooms are to die for (I hate to end a sentence with a preposition, but it expresses the feeling well). The location cannot be beat. The peregrinos you will meet are replete with stories of their pilgrimage. This is an opportunity to explore many cultures in a luxurious setting. Do not let it slip through your fingers. Our test: would we return? Yes and we plan to do so.
