Santiago de Compostela is the capital of Galicia and the historic city where the Camino culminates. It can be accessed through the pilgrimage from different points of the map, being the Jacobean Routes the main ways to reach the remains of the apostle. Pilgrims celebrate their arrival in the Plaza del Obradoiro and enjoy the incredible panoramic view offered by the facade of the Cathedral and its surroundings. However, once inside the region you can also visit other monuments and buildings just as relevant.
The Casa de la Troya Museum is one of those many places that we can attend in Santiago de Compostela and that we cannot overlook. It is defined by being an old hostelry decorated with utensils, furniture and other 19th century fixtures and fittings that pay tribute to the student lifestyle of the time. The building was run by a woman popularly known in the area as "Doña Generosa", who was responsible for renting beds and rooms to students in the Galician capital.
The building dates from the mid-17th century and is fully decorated to taste. Located in the old part of the city, on Rúa da Troia, the Casa da Troia Museum is currently owned by the City Council. Thanks to this, it has been transformed into a space where pilgrims, tourists or visitors can experience the image and likeness of what it was like to be a student in Santiago de Compostela at that time.
