Praza das Praterías

sights / Squares & plazas

Lonely Planet review

Praza das Praterías is marked with the Fuente de los Caballos (1829) fountain, with Catedral de Santiago de Compostela's south facade at the top of the steps. Curiously, the Casa do Cabildo, facing it on the lower side of the square, is no more than a 3m-deep facade, erected in 1758 to embellish the plaza.
