Monasterio de Santa Cruz Reviews

How it is on the way out, the next day resuming the Camino is very simple. Also 1 block away is the Bus x stop if you want to stay on it. They welcome you with a glass and a jug of water and offering you a treat. You register and pay 10 euros per person in a double room with private bathroom. They take you to the garden where you will leave your boots and you can wash and lay your clothes. They also teach you a mini kitchen in case you like to cook something. We ordered a private room for two people. And it was perfect. Two single beds. Clean sheets that you put and quilts in the closet. Perfect shower with bathroom. Good plugs and light. Obviously, THERE is NO WIFI. They explain that at 5pm there is a mass where there will be a special blessing for pilgrims. At 8 o'clock there is a community dinner where you have to register and bring something to share. It closes at 10 and silences from 10:30pm to 7am. I mean, perfect for resting. You can be in perfect Peace in the surroundings. Visit the chapel. Go to the garden. Make friends or go for a walk in the ghost town. They offer you breakfast from 6 o'clock and it is with donation. By 8am you must be out by 8am. They have an area where you can leave or take things that you no longer occupy or vice versa. There are everything from kleenex to boots... 100% recommended

The altarpiece is a jewel of the Baroque, by Joaquín de Churriguera. In the Monastery there is a pilgrim hostel run by the Marist Brothers.
We arrived with reservations after a long wet walk. We were not greeted well, a lot of yelling, facial expression of disgust, changing prices, and pounding on the table. The room was filthy only to reveal an even more disgusting bathroom. We took the Pilgrim meal as we were told the money goes to the orphanage in Peru and the meal was the worst of all meals. No effort in preparation of the meal. Would have happily donated more to the cause but the women in the kitchen were miserable. Certainly not the experience I had hoped for.When I asked if one of the women would mind making a reservation for me she was so angry and demanded I pay her. For a more pleasant experience book elsewhere.
Excellent . Lovely friendly welcoming people .
