The capital of Galicia combines this indisputable attraction with a wide range of leisure and culture activities, with one of the most beautiful historical city centres in the country and a culinary offering that makes every traveller delight. The traditional pulpo á feira, coffee liqueur and Torta de Santiago almond cake sprinkled with powdered sugar are as ever-present as the pilgrims, and are part of the city's identity.
Santiago beats to the rhythm of the Cathedral bells and marks the unhurried time of all of Galicia. The city will leave no visitor indifferent and, as Paulo Coelho says, "It isn't the end of the road; it's the beginning"
The Eurostars Araguaney Hotel is a prestigious five-stars located in the centre of Santiago de Compostela. Founded in 1985, from the very beginning it became synonymous with elegance and distinction and nowadays is, without any doubt, the establishment of reference in the capital of Galicia.

The Caney Restaurant, of renown in Santiago, serves excellent dishes enabling one to enjoy the best traditional cuisine from Galicia and others from different cultures.
Our name, Araguaney, evokes far-off lands. The araguaney (tabebuia chrysantha) is the tree that symbolizes Venezuela, which bears very attractive yellow flowers. In the Arab world, the term ‘aryuani’ defines a very bright yellow colour. The araguaney is the hotel’s inspiring essence because in one sole denomination it unites Arab colours and luxuriant Latin American vegetation. Araguaney was the name chosen by the founder of the hotel, Ghaleb Jaber Ibrahim, long settled in Compostela, who is of Palestinian origin and has a Venezuelan wife.
An unmistakable identity mark of the Eurostars Araguaney is its passion for art. Along the corridors and in the guest rooms hang works by artists such as Quintana Martelo, Antón Patiño or Felipe Criado.
