16TH C. MONASTERY-HOSPITAL

Construction began around 1515 on this monumental building, which features a Spanish Plateresque façade. The past makes its appearance in the Cloister, Church, Choir and Chapterhouse, and the present in the careful renovation-work, combined with an interior filled with works of art and rooms which gave shelter to pilgrims in times of old.

A night's stay here is truly a luxury, offering: suites with views of the cloister, stately rooms, and a restaurant which offers: Cocido Maragato (stew), frog legs, beef sweetbreads, cured beef and goat meats and mountain meats.
