  • It is a tiny monastery of the 9th century (nine) housed pilgrims for centuries. Now it is always closed to the public. You see it from the outside. It would be great to navigate it.

  • A beautiful little church in the region of Asturias. You can visit in groups with a guide who will tell you the history of the place, in Spanish. Interesting. A corner full of peace and yet close to Oviedo. The Carmelite nuns who live in this monastery also sell some of their products: jams, creams ... and sacred things.

  • From Villaviciosa, you have to do a few km full of curves, but it's worth much. The monastery is spectacular, and the Church of the monastery is really important and beautiful, with very original decorative details. The cloister is very big but it is bland. The restoration has been done has not been very good, in my opinion. But what brings me back to this site lost at the head of a Valley (the "val of God") is "The Conventín". A beautiful church from the year 900 and pico, one of the best preserved examples of pre-Romanesque Asturian, built by those who knew build (and choose the setting) much better than the future builders of the monastery, which has obvious problems of Foundation. The Conventín is impeccably on foot, and inside transports you to the dawn of the year 1000 and the principles of the Camino de Santiago. Because it preserves sensitive cells in which the pilgrims, protected from the rain and cold were staying. It is a miracle that has survived to this day.
