  • Very nice monasterio with a sweet small atrium. Is good to combine with a trip to Potes. Also the churches around are mos def a visit worth.
  • It is an impressive place. Also visit it this year has been very emotional because it's the year retirement. I think it is a little valued place given the importance that tube within our history preromanica and Romanesque

  • Monasterio de Santo Toribio de Liébana is one of the most valuable relics of the Christian world, the largest piece of the Holy Cross, where the crucifixion of Jesus, known as the Lignum Crucis was brought from the Holy land in the fifth century by St. Toribio to Leon, and then moved to different locations for fear of desecration from the Muslims. In the end, went to a monastery, where it is today. Pielgrzymując after the Camino de Santiago is really worth seeing is the place and the relics

  • A piece of history in a breathtaking landscape. One pass. It is recommended to follow the road up to the Hermitage of San Miguel to enjoy the views. You should consult the schedule to visit the chapel for the relic.
