Part of the complex that houses Pilgrims. Wonderful experience, beautiful buildings, limited places to eat or drink in the area but it all works somehow :-)

This ancient church is located on the Pilgrim’s route. Unlike many churches in Spain, it is open all day and entry is free of charge. The church has massive stained glass windows. A crypt is located down a narrow flight of stairs.

Great facilities for a massive dormitory. Great service by the laundry team. They deserve medals. Clean fresh cubicles. Helpful staff. Media, library and chill out rooms were very relaxing. It seems the albergue has an arrangement with nearby cafe to supply meals to pilgrims. The albergue staff take your money for dinner and breakfast and provide you with a docket.... More

Right next door to the hotel was the church. Despite not being Catholic, I felt welcome and peaceful. Get there early, as the 8PM evening mass was standing room only!

We stayed one night in this historical hotel, rooms very comfortable and good food. Highly recommended as a resting place during the Camino de Santiago.

This is a magnificent church, a great place to attend the Pilgrim's Mass, where we had blessings in many languages, with pilgrim's from over 20 countries. The interior was beautifully done. In particular, the ornate baldachin above the magnificent statue of the Virgin is lovely. Small and intimate, let steeped in history.

I loved this ancient cathedral and felt very special going to the pilgrims mass and receiving my first blessing for my journey ahead. I lit a candle for loved ones and found the experience sublime.

It's amazing to be in a place with so much history and legends. You can easy imagine the place covered with snow.
