What and where is Pilgrim house?
Where?: Less than 400 m SE of the Cathedral.

Plug the address into Google:

Rúa Nova, 19, 15705 Santiago de Compostela

What?:

A place to hang out with other pilgrims, process the pilgrimage experience.

Have some coffee, tea, cocoa and/or use the kitchen facility.

Shower down, rest up.

Get your clothes cleaned.

Meditate in the quiet room at the back while your clothes are being cleaned or read from the sharing library on hand.

Pop next door to the Rua Bella for a bite and a brew or some vino.

Enough?

The phenomenon is coming to Portugal, too, I have seen a couple in Lisbon just recently opened. And the great thing is that these places have machines that directly dispense the soap, so unlike when I was traveling in my youth, you don't have to worry about buying a little box of detergent.

And very conveniently the washing machine dispenses its own detergent when you start it up so you don't need to bring any. Pop over to the market to kill time while the machines are running.

Thanks for this info. I’ve added it to my favorites in Maps. I will definitely check out the Pilgrim House when I’m in Santiago this coming March.
