A reception office
This building is the headquarters of the reception office for pilgrims coming to Santiago, and is managed by the Archdiocese. It was built by Clemente Fernandez Sarela, in the eighteenth century, to house the bishops who visited the city, and afterwards it continued to serve as a place for the most important religious visitors to stay. The most striking feature of the façade is the decoration that frames the front door, as well as the balcony. The interior has a beautiful staircase leading to the upper floor. It's open every day from 9:00 to 21:00 h.
