The monastery of San Salvador de Celanova was an abbey of Benedictines. It is very big for a small village like Celanova. The most interesting part is the small mozarabic chapel of San Miguel (dating from 942) in the interior of the monastery.

The church was typical of churches in the area but the cloisters were worth a visit. The tourist office is next door and they are very helpful.

Beautiful to see both inside and outside - a lovely place of worship in a quaint town in Galicia. It was nice to have a beer in the bar opposite and watch the locals go by.
