Monasterio de San Martin Pinario, Santiago de Compostela

A Benedictine monastery, Monasterio de San Martin Pinario is the second-largest religious structure in Santiago, and has been largely rebuilt so that little of the original structure remains. Look for the cloisters inside the church, as well as the altarpiece that tells the stories of Benedictine saints. The gardens are especially peaceful: you can have some tea or read a book there. Modern rooms and facilities are available for those who wish to stay overnight at the monastery.

  • On 22 March in the afternoon at 16.30 hours, pay $ 5 for a guided tour, my guide was called David, and was a visit alone he and I alone, and is the money better employed, I learned a lot from David, very friendly and didactio and thank you for your passion to the time to explain this great monastery of Santiago, only surpassed in size by the one of el Escorial, an altarpiece grandiose Baroque and a dome of the great Church, in short is little known, I encourage people to discover it is spectacular.

  • I could have stayed here for hours there are so many rooms to visit! I loved the stamps and presses as well as the amazing woodwork. I highly recommend this while you’re near the Catedral.  more »

  • It's really nice old mostery (cold! But good in the summer) , with a good collection of the monk's possessions.
  • Beautiful architectural building
  • Better than the Cathedral?
  • I have visited this monastery on 01/04/18, along with 3 friends. It has been a guided tour and wanted to make special mention of the Guide (which now do not remember his name), but that has made us a fantastic visit, detail and passionate with the explanations. The visit has been very interesting.

  • Amazing, possibly the best cultural activity after the Cathedral to do in Santiago. Simply beautiful and super full. That Yes, estimated that you will need about 2-3 h to see it like.
