    Monastery

    by Carmela71 Updated Nov 12, 2003

    Favorite thing: The monastery is still inhabited by a Benedictine community and is open to visitors, they have guides in Spanish, explaining all the art details of the cloister

    If i am not wrong 2,40 euros the entrance

    Cloister

    Favorite thing: The monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos at the SE of Covarrubias, is said to have originally been founded in 593 by the Visigothic King, Recaredo I (the one that introduced the Catholic religion in Spain).

    The Visigoth church was destroyed by the Moors, and rebuilt in 1042 by Santo Domingo.
