Loved the beauty of the old monastery building. Resturaunt prices a touch high, but that is normal for this part of Spain. Great position, not too far from the motorway, and close to the picturesque river.

It's free and conveniently close to the Cathedral, so well worth a 5 minute detour. You can visit it fairly quickly. The Sala Triste has portraits of the solemn-looking deans. The chapel was built by Gregorio Fernández and it's really nice.

The building is currently the rectory of the University, so you can visit it freely during working days. Within the impressive courtyard there are some exhibitions rooms that contains a good collection of african art. In the first floor you can peek into the historical library.
