The town's name is Lavacolla, which is the "Lavamentula" mentioned in the Codex Calixtinus, where the pilgrims wash and tidy themselves before entering Santiago. At the beginning of the 9th century, Iria's bishop, Teodomiro, discovered the grave of the apostle Santiago. The Kings Alfonso II and Alfonso III built churches and founded the Antealtares and Pinario monasteries. The cult to Santiago raised the suspicions of the Caliph Almanzor who demolished and burned Compostela in 997, and took its bells to Cordoba. The pilgrimages reached their peak in later years and King Alfonso VI started building the Romanesque cathedral in 1075. A few years later Count Don Ramón de Borgoña and Diego Gelmírez gave a boost to its construction, along with that of other churches; the city grew and its inhabitants rose up against the queen, Doña Urraca y Gelmírez, in 1117. In 1211 Master Mateo and his artisans finished the cathedral. Thus was reached, and not always peacefully, the end of the Middle Ages. The Renaissance came with the Catholic Monarchs, and with the construction of the Hospital Real (Royal Hospital) - now a magnificent hotel. To their credit, the archbishops of the Fonseca family left an indelible mark by founding the University, paying for the cathedral's splendid cloister and building the College of Fonseca. In the Baroque period, the historic city was renovated to practically its modern-day appearance; as were the cathedral, churches and monasteries. Nowadays, Santiago is a modern city with a population of over 105,000, in which the old city and historic centre is merged with its wider, more recent surroundings. It is the seat of the Galician Government and the region's academic bastion, with more than 35,000 students. Santiago often plays host to conventions and congresses, due to its facilities such as the Galicia Auditorium and the modern Convention and Exhibition Centre: a functional, versatile building with capacity for up to 2,100 people. A modern industrial park, the Polígono del Tambre, just 10 minutes from the city centre, is home to the main businesses and industries.
