The amazing balconies on the building?s main façade were designed by Frey Tomás Alonso. These balconies are supported by fantastic figures and the cornice of the building is decorated with grotesque gargoyles that stand out.

Inside the building, there are four remarkable courtyards: 2 Plateresque styled and 2 Baroque styled. There is also a chapel inside the Hostal that was declared National Monument in 1912.

Nowadays, the Hostal de los Reyes Católicos is one of the most luxurious inns in Spain (Parador).

Address: Praza do Obradoiro (Obradoiro Square)
Directions: In the Cathedral's square.
