Praza do Obradoiro information

Lonely Planet review

Praza do Obradoiro , to which most arriving Camino pilgrims instinctively find their way, earned its name from the stonemasons’ workshops set up here while Catedral de Santiago de Compostela was being built. Along the western side of the square is the elegant 18th-century Pazo de Raxoi , now the city hall.
