Monasterio de San Martín Pinario

Built between IX and XIX centuries, Monasterio de San Martín  Pinario, illustrates the wealth of monasteries. Even the entrance doors have gold leaf.

Leading off the main aisle, impressive side chapels.

The choir stalls carved walnut.

The church is now a museum.It contains a printing press and wood blocks used for printing.

Where did the monks go? Where did all the wealth go?
