We walked past the ruins whilst on Camino, They are very inpressive, there is a lady who lives in the ruins and tends the gardens. You can stay there, although very basic, it would be a nice experiance.

This monastery is few miles out of Castrojeriz but well worth the visit. The road actually goes right through the ruins and you can really get a sense of what this place used to be. There is a cafe/hostel on the grounds where you can...More

The headline says it all. It is impressive once you approach the site but there is nothing more to say really. Not worth a detour in my mind. But if you are on the road anyway, stop for 10 minutes and then move on.

Take a little of time off the trail and explore this place, it is very interesting and beautiful. There is also an Albergue here.

The best albergue we stayed at on the Camino Frances. It has a majestic atmosphere that was both thrilling and a brilliant setting for reflection at the almost-midpoint of the camino. The volunteers cooked an amazing feast for dinner, and the communal atmosphere among volunteers...More

Follow the signs to the albergue even if you won't be staying there. They lead to a gate where you can go inside the ruins if the hospitaleros are there. I've stayed here both as a pilgrim and as a hospitalera and highly recommend it...More

It's places like these that remind you of the importance of places of rest and refuge for pilgrims. Take time to explore and read how this was a place of healing.

I always love wandering through ruins. The Monastery of San Anton was no exception. The albergue had not opened for the season. Notes and blessings are left in the openings once used to distribute bread. They were interesting to read. If you are a dog...More
