English Praza do Obradoiro

The Praza do Obradoiro (Galician for "Square of the Workshop") is main square of the Santiago de Compostela old town, although not placed at the real centre. It lies to the West of the main façade of the Santiago de Compostela cathedral, and thus the Pórtico da Gloria must be crossed to get into the building from the square. It is surrounded by four important buildings, said to represent the four powers of the city: the aforementioned Santiago de Compostela cathedral to the East (the Church), Hostal dos Reis Católicos (the doctors and bourgeoisie) to the North, Pazo de Raxoi (the government; after the Spanish transition to democracy was seat for the President of the Xunta of Galicia, nowadays the city council) to the West and the Colexio de San Xerome (the university) to the South. Once being crossed by cars, now is mainly pedestrian as the rest of the old town, with only traffic for taxis and (un)loading delivery lorries.

The floor is decorated by eight rays starting from the center, where a plaque commemorates the World Heritage Site pilgrims' way of Camiño de Santiago, whose final target is around here.

Portuguese Praça do Obradoiro

A Praça do Obradoiro (em galego: Praza do Obradoiro; em castelhano: Plaza del Obradoiro é a principal e mais famosa praça da cidade de Santiago de Compostela, capital da Galiza. Ali se encontram os edifícios mais emblemáticos da cidade. A fachada mais famosa da catedral, construída por cima do primitivo Pórtico da Glória românico, ocupa o lado oriental da praça. Em frente dela está o Paço de Raxoi, a sede do governo galego (Junta da Galiza) e do município compostelano. O lado norte é ocupado pelo Hospital dos Reis Católicos e no lado oposto, a sul, encontra-se o Colégio de São Jerónimo.

A extensa praça é o ponto de encontro dos peregrinos que fazem o Caminho de Santiago, o qual termina com visita do túmulo do apóstolo Santiago Maior na catedral. É também local habitual das manifestações políticas, como as ocorridas em maio de 2009 em prol do uso da língua galega.
