Tour description

Come and see the Hostal de los Reyes Católicos through a very special free tour .

The 1 hour and 15 minute tour will begin in front of the Hostel's façade . It will be at that moment when we know the reason for its construction. Through its façade, with an impressive iconographic message, we will enter a spectacular building with four cloisters and a church.

We will visit the first two cloisters. In them we will see the curiosities and stories that this spectacular building keeps . Did you know that it had its own morgue? Will you be able to find his leech cache?
After that we will see the majestic T-shaped church and the message it transmits made of a stone very different from granite.
Finally, we will see the two rear cloisters and how a building like this becomes a hotel .
After touring the interior we will go out again to the Plaza del Obradoiro to enjoy views that have nothing to do with the past. You know what I'm talking about, right?

🚨 The visit requires a pre-access payment of 3 euros per person, which will be made in cash before starting the free tour🚨. Mondays are free!

The free payment characteristic of free tours will be made by each client at the end of the visit in cash or card.

Enjoy all the tours we have under our VIOLETA umbrella.
