The San Paio de Antealtares Monastery is one of the most important in the city and one of its façades faces the Cathedral’s Porta Santa, in Praza da Quintana. It houses an interesting and extensive collection of sacred art, with sculptures, paintings, gold/silver articles and ornaments, among which we can highlight the old altar of St. James. The museum is accessed through the church.
For group visits book in advance. Confectionery products made by the nuns are on sale in the porter’s lodge of the convent.
