Description

A Monastery founded in the 7th century, in which the Mercedario fathers created one of the most important cultural centres in Galicia. In the Claustro de los Naranjos pieces belonging to the old Roman monastery are exhibited. A room in the monastery houses the Antón Machourek Museum, which has a collection of one hundred and fifty works by this Czech artist, as well as the most representative work of the Galician artist Pedro García Lema and watercolours by the Mercedario, Julián Martín Casado. On display in the library are personal mementos of the priest, Antonio Rey Soto, who lived in the monastery: Drawings by Castelao, Sargadelos ceramics, etc.
