Santiago de Compostela is one of the cities with more centuries of history of the Iberian Peninsula. The territory was developed over time around the Cathedral of Santiago, which is why through the streets we find a multitude of places, monuments and buildings with thousands of years old, as well as customs and traditions that have to do with the pilgrimage and other cultural interests.

Open the doors through which the pilgrims of the French Way used to enter.

The Azabachería Square, popularly known in Galicia as Praza da Acibechería, is one of the four most important squares built around the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and is located just north of the basilica. In the Middle Ages it used to be referred to as Acibechería and Paradise, since it opens one of the gates through which pilgrims on the French Way historically entered.

Of medieval origins, it was built in the early seventeenth century and connects to the Praza da Inmaculada, which can be discovered a few steps from the Plaza de la Azabachería. From the perspective of the pilgrims, it is one of the most significant scenarios within the Jacobean phenomenon, as it was a connection point between the cathedral of the city and the tomb of St. James.
