Description:
The monastery reflects a very simple and cold design, with the only exception of the façade, which is accessed by a large stairway. The façade is divided into three parts with a central section bordered by two four-storey walls. Located in Santiago de Compostela (La Coruña, Galicia), its five-section tower helps break the monotony of the façade. The doorway, framed by several Doric columns, houses an image of St. Benedict and is crowned by the structure added by Fernando de Casas, which includes the Spanish coat of arms among scallop shells and the figure of St. Martin of Tours.
