  • Crossing Lourenzá heading to Foz us surprised this beautiful church. Its similar in tiny with the Cathedral of Santiago not is of chance, as are work of the same architect. With luck you can match on a visit explained or, like nocostros, encontrartye with a friendly man who explains it. LLA ma the attention that this unfinished and you lack an of the towers. The altar more precious

  • This is very wonderfull place with good atmosphere. And the peoples is very kind and helpfull. I love this place 
  • If I say she was complicated, it is because the erroneous info plastered on the Church. After an hour of waiting, we inquired with a bandwidth that has directed us towards a person speaking fluent English, which called the guide who gave us venue for 5 pm. The Church itself, Baroque (18th century), does not present great interest. The façade recalls and precedes the erection of the Cathedral of St jacques de Compostela. The sacristy (admission €2), with respect to it, presents several treasures: - a magnificent reliquary of the XVIIth - of ancient bibles of the 9th century (according to the guide that it only opens on a single page) - a 17th century wooden altarpiece painted beauty. -Some interesting statues. In the underground chapel Notre-Dame de Valdeflores rests the sarcophagus marble beauty of Saint Conde, founder of the monastery. Alas, the monastery itself cannot be visited, the Museum of sacred art (€1 extra) is possible on a visit starting from 10 people... and we were only 6 including four french pilgrims who had joined us. Note, once more, the kindness of the Galician people: the person speaking English has accompanied US throughout the visit to translate from Spanish to English explanations of the guide who, herself, came specially for us.
