A Brazilian pilgrim told me in O Cebreiro that if I could, I should stay in Samos next. The albergue is on the monastery and it would be a good experience to stay there.

When I found Triacastela to be too commercial with many private albergues, I decided to push another 6 km to Samos.

Beautiful rainbow on the way down O Cebreiro.

Outside Samos. A nice view of the monastery.

The oldest monastery in Spain. Founded in the 6th century by St Martin of Braga.

A tour inside the monastery.

Unfortunately the tour did not include the library. During the medieval time, only the clergy had access to learning and books.
