  • This magnificent monastery of the tenth century is located in a spectacular place, in the Natural Park of fragas do Eume. To reach it, we will take in Puenteareas the dp-6902 road, which goes parallel to the river Eume, until we reach the Interpretation Center, where we can park the car and get all the information we want. We were in early September and, in theory, from that point the road was restricted and we should have taken there a free bus that would leave us near the monastery, but the case is that we were told that we could continue by car, so we were able to continue about 7 kilometers and park next to a bridge, at the entrance of the monastery, where it is forbidden to continue by car. The space is very small, but we were able to leave the vehicle. From there a walk to the monastery, where Mary José awaited us who took a free guided tour explaining magnificently everything related to the monastic complex and the park. Once the guided tour was over we had all the free time we wanted to be there and even to eat in the magnificent Tavern of Caaveiro, which occupies what was the Casa do Forno of the complex. As I said before, it is an idyllic place, highly recommended if we are visiting Galicia. Before visiting the monastery it is advisable to contact the Interpretation Center to reserve a place on the bus or inform us about the free guided tours, on the phones 981 459 006 and 617 562 302 (the latter every day from 10.00 to 18.00 hours). The free visiting hours of the monastery are from 09.00 to 21.00 hours.

  • Whoever visits Fragas de Eume, surely will have the idea of visiting the Monastery, the entrance is free, the visit is very nice, the monastery has a very particular charm, the place is pure magic, it has a restaurant. You have to walk x the forest about 10 minutes up until you reach the entrance. Highly recommended, go with comfortable clothes and slippers.
