  • A magical place, hidden on the Via del Sar. Going down this road you can enjoy the view of the Cidade da Cultura in the distance. The Colexiata is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 to 14. The small cloister is a beauty and the church, with its leaning columns, is unique. There is a small museum. Parking cars in the area has finally been banned. So you can admire the Colexiata completely.
  • Immediately on your left as you come into Santiago off the Camino Sanabres/Invierno. If you have the chance (check opening times and days) a visit is well worth your while. In fact, it's worth waiting to visit later, with plenty of time to see the church and to visit the cloister. When I went by it was closed, but even the outside is interesting, with the 18th century buttresses and Romanesque porticos.
  • Interesting museum and church but a bit out of the way worth a visit if you fancy a walk
  • The Church sits by the river of that name. It is the oldest parish church in Santiago and its construction began in the 12th Century. This beautiful church boasts a cloister and museum and is open daily for visits.
  • Small place with nice cloisters and away from the masses that invade every corner of Santiago...
