Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos

The Hostal de los Reyes Catolicos is a large Gothic building that the Catholic Kings built to house the pilgrims who finished the Camino de Santiago. Today it is the most luxurious parador in Spain. The architect of the building was Enrique Egas, who built the Toledo Cathedral. Construction started in 1501 and finished in 1511. The facade has a Plateresque doorway made from stone and has plenty of ornamentation. There is a chapel inside with a Gothic vault. There are two patios in the front that are Plateresque in style, and two patios in the back that are Baroque in style.
