Monasterio de La Magadalena


During my short stay in Sarria, I dropped in to visit the Monasterio de La Magadalena, "presently belonging to the Mercedarian Fathers, founded at the beginning of the 13th century as a pilgrim hospital by Italian monks of the Order of the Blessed Martyrs of Jesus, who were also pilgrims. The present building, which houses a small but lovely cloister and an interesting church, is a mixture of different styles of construction ranging from the 15th to the 18th centuries. Today, it is also a private school. (Wikipedia)"
