Originally the name of the street, Inferniño –the little hell– is a gentle dig at this past, as well as to our location, figuratively below the Cathedral. However, today what really awaits you is quite the opposite: a little haven for travellers amidst the imposing buildings and narrow streets of Santiago’s old town.
From the apartments you can almost hear the creak of the rope as it swings the Cathedral’s massive Botafumiero or thurible in a 65 metre arc, spreading the scent of incense throughout the transept. And if you look out into the square you’ll see the endless trickle of pilgrims doggedly completing hundreds of kilometres of the Camino de Santiago. Or maybe you’ll relive your own arrival as you now enjoy a well-deserved rest in the best of surroundings.
