The Parador at Santiago Del Compostello. (I know I'm not spelling that right.) This was a medieval hospitality house for pilgrims...rich ones. It was full of castlely things and royal chapels and massive courtyards.
But the best thing is that it was diagonally across from....
...this. The MASSIVE basilica of St. James the Apostle. Photos are impossible, folks. You just have to go there.
It has been the destination point for pilgrims for nearly two thousand years. Very holy place.
Don't think. Just go.
