This monastery is located next to the Santiago Cathedral and was recommended to us by our local guide. The guided tours are supposed to be fantastic (and are the only way to see the cloisters), but are only done in Spanish so we opted to walk around on our own. The baroque altars were fabulous and we were amazed at the three dimensional decorations all around the main altar. Be sure to walk behind the main altar to check out the intricately carved wooden choir stalls. In addition to the baroque church with its many side altars you have access to other areas to view the antique printing presses and the very detailed stamps used to make the book pages. We were so glad we took this tour!

Nice church, beautiful wooden choir seats. Not a lot to see beyond that. Not sure it was worth the admission price. Also unclear entrance marking

Who is churches very impressive. If it wasn’t for the fact that it was next-door to the cathedral, Santiago to Compostela it would be a star. Unfortunately, with that level of competition it’s hard to come out number one but they gave it a really good shot. It is an extremely well built church very ornate, not quite to the same standard as the cathedral, but not far. We do actually have the old choir from the cathedral and the woodworking, and it is simply amazing. Personally, I think it’s the better of the two churches simply there’s a lot less people and you can actually get closer to things to be able to see him more clearly it also has interesting printing press and dies.

Perhaps it is one of the jewels of Santiago de Compostela, it has a guided tour that is highly recommended.

Beautifully restored monastery and church. A must see. The original wood choir stalls from Santiago's main cathedral are installed her in the choir loft. Don't miss seeing them. The entire museum space is in pristine restored condition.

One of the best monastery/church visits we have made. Very informational, great access to behind-the-scenes church areas, and wonderful artifacts on display. Not a lot of information about the monastery, but the church visit was fantastic, including being able to climb up to the choir above the altar. Most signs were also in English, but not all. Well worth the 4€ entrance fee (for old peregrinos).

The front doors are closed. Facing the front of the church turn left and then walk towards the church and turn left to go around down the alley. You’ll get to the museum entrance. Enter the museum and pay 5 euros or 4 for pilgrims. Enter the museum to get to this stunning church. I am amazed it wasn’t packed with tourists. This church is jaw droppingly beautiful. Then to find the museum - find the WC toilets and on the opposite side you’ll see a sign that says Continue. Walk up those stairs to see the museum. You can walk to the top of the church and look down on the altar as well. This church is well worth the visit, and again, I am stunned it wasn’t packed with tourists. All I can guess is that folks haven’t figured out they can get to the church through the museum entrance.

I think many people might oversee this Monastery very near the Cathedral but it is worth it going inside, the entrance is cheap and the altars are really very impressive. We enoyed it very much.
