    The Benedictine Monastery of San Xulián de Samos was founded in the 6th century and is an important waypoint on the Camino Francés. Since its founding, it has undergone various changes of ownership and has been destroyed several times by fire. Finally, it had to be rebuilt in 1951.

    The detour to the shorter route via San Xil, the northern variant, was worthwhile. And unlike expected, the way was nice, only the first three kilometers on the little busy road along.

    Samos overwhelms you with his monastery. A guide is offered and you should really consider this
