  • Where today only 8 monks live... We paid the visit. The monk poured himself chocolate and I thought he was going to invite us... No. The alone ate the chocolate. Enfin, the monastery burned down and largely renovated. It's worth the visit.

  • popping-up during the way, this hidden jewel is definitely worth a visit. Short guided tours make the visit even more interesting. charming and non-expensive shop  more »

  • One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I wish to spend time there. Just sublime. Spectacular architecture.
  • OK, we had a bed and that was important. Did not like the bed bugs. Huge underground dorm room a bit musky. All up an interesting experience which I would not want to miss but also won't want to repeat.
  • Amazing food, super tasty and exquisite soups. Awesome Tiramisu. 100% recommended.
  • An incredible piece of living history. This large monastery has beautiful art and an even more beautiful story. Considered the oldest continuously running Catholic monastery in the world, the priest at San Xulian continue to produce new priest each year albeit much fewer than in times past. The pilgrims mass for those on their way to Santiago de Compostela, is beautiful as chanting and song ring throughout the beautiful church connected to the monastery. It is the main feature in the town of Samos and well worth the taking the alternate route on the Camino to get there. The scenic winding road that goes up and down tree lined paths is one of the more special walks on the whole Camino. The payoff is an amazing view looking down on the town and monesatry as you approach from above. My wife (fiancé at the time) recived two special silver wedding crosses from a priest after confession which made it all the more special.
  • So beautiful place, just don't sleep in the albergue
