The spiritual and historical vibe of this comfortable spot in Compostela is irresistible.
Located in the centre of Santiago de Compostela, the San Francisco de Val de Deus Convent was founded in 1214 by the famous friar himself and is still inhabited by Franciscans. Declared a historical-artistic monument in 1986 and of cultural interest by UNESCO, part of the neoclassical and Baroque building was renovated and opened to the public in 2005 as a hotel. After being destroyed in the 18th century, reconstruction began in 1742, with the convent retaining its five ogival arches from its original architecture. Just 150 metres from the cathedral, the hotel has 82 rooms, a heated pool, a jacuzzi with a view of Mount Pedroso and iconic areas, like the Pátio de Cristal and the Monumental restaurant, housed in the old refectory, where the pulpit and altarpiece remain. The restaurant specialises in conventual cuisine, with dishes based on natural ingredients and slow and traditional methods.
