The monastery is being rehabbed by the Patrimonio which takes on many of the historic spots in Spain. The church has been almost completed and is wonderful. Make sure you look in the side chapels, some of the altarpieces are quite unique.

Stopped here on our Camino tour and after a stage walk. There was a pilgrim Mass in Spanish underway. One can see where this is a welcome rest for pilgrims.

Situated on the Pilgrims' Trail, this church is in a small village. Although not particularly attractive from the outside, it has an impressive interior with interesting historical items which have informative signs written in Spanish, French and English.

We stayed here during our Camino, as there were no rooms to be found anywhere for miles. The church is currently under renovation, but is quite nice. We attended a lovely mass there and enjoyed it thoroughly. The albergue is quite crude however. We slept...More
