For centuries, Monte do Gozo was a benchmark in Jacobean culture for its history, symbolism and connection with the city of Santiago de Compostela.
Stage of the main events of the 1989 World Youth Day, attended by Pope John Paul II, and an indisputed landmark for pilgrims during the historic Xacobeo of 1993, this emblematic stage of the Camino has been losing its value and importance in the collective imagination over the years.
Today, after an extensive rehabilitation work, Monte do Gozo shines again in its best light, aiming to become a must stop not only in the last stage of the French Route, but also in any visit to the Galician capital.
Monte do Gozo aspires to offer not only a wide variety of quality accommodation for pilgrims and tourists, but also a spacious leisure area consisting of large and well-tended green spaces, a modern bar and a vast array of shops and services.
The offer of Benvido Albergues also includes the reactivation of the programming of the on-site spacious outdoor auditorium, nowadays once again welcoming important musical events with international artists.
As if this were not enough, the offer is completed with the recently refurbished free access swimming pools, which will be particularly appreciated by visitors and guests of Monte do Gozo during the hot summer months.
