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.

  • Better than the Cathedral?
  • Beautiful architectural building
  • Hospedería economic and very cosy. Also if it gives it back to the building is the Church of San Martín Pinario. Impressive.

  • Un dos mosteiros mais grandes de Europa. Conxunto arquitectónico marabilloso e digno de ver. Ademáis da súa igrexa, visitable, acolle o Seminario Maior, o Arquivo Diocesano e Parroquial, a Escola Univ. De Traballo Social e un hotel (hospedería), polo que reina a paz e o silencio.

Where to stay in Santiago de Compostela

Lodging in the city's old district is the most scenic option. Some hotels even offer rooms in renovated historical buildings near the cathedral. Consider a stay in Monte do Gozo, a small town just outside the city that offers 2,000 beds to weary pilgrims.
