Monastery of Silos – Santo Domingo de Silos

The town of Santo Domingo de Silos has been directly linked to the history of the monastery since it was founded under its protection.  There have been prehistoric settlements found in this area as well.  The monastery is located in the valley of Tabladillo, where, towards the end of the 9th century, monasti-cism reigned.

Moreover, this magnificent Benedictine monastery still conserves the old con-vent of San Francisco, a building from the 18th century which was recently converted into an inn and centre of monastic studies.
