The church of the Monasterio de San Martín Pinario is now a museum.

A much larger building facing Catedral de Santiago has its doors wide open, open times displayed, and yet when you walk in, told it is not open to the public.

There is though another entrance.

This leads to a vey impressive hotel, and yet only a one star Pension.

Leading off from the cloisters, the Refectory, now serving food.

  1. caldo Gallego
  2. escalope de cerdo con ensalada
  3. manzano asado

Galican broth (potatoes and vegetables), escalope of pork with salad and chips, with baked apple as dessert.

The broth was a meal in itself. An alternative starter octopus and potatoes, portion size sufficient for a main meal.

Served with bread, a bottle of red wine and  a large bottle of water

Followed by coffee or tea.
