  • The convent of St. Anton in the Middle Ages was a famous Hospital where he was responsible for the so-called "shingles", very popular at the time, especially in Germany. This disease was caused by a fungus that altered the rye that the Germanic population used to make bread. Among other things in the middle ages, this disease was considered contagious whereby ordinary pilgrims going to Santiago were accommodated in the monastery, but came with their food dropped from above, through a pulley. Currently the monastery there are only goticheggianti including majestic ruins have been converted into two small houses that serve as basic shelter to modern pilgrims. The ruins of the monastery are beautiful and very romantic. The columns and the high Gothic arches without coverage give an idea of past grandeur of this Catholic monastery where today, paradoxically, sventolono of Tibetan flags.

  • On the way to Castrojeriz suddenly appear these spectacular ruins of a Gothic convent of s. 14th with an impressive Gothic portico sealed, under which passes the road. It was a hospital for pilgrims and currently operates in summer as a hostel.
