    I just read of the Benedictine Monastery at Monte Irago, and am looking forward to a stop over there.

    I would love to stay in a monastery while on my walk next year. Does anyone know where I can find information regarding which towns/villages have a monastery in which I can stay? Also those that allow pilgrims, are they open (do monasteries close?) year round? Thanks, Karen

    Mass and Monasteries along the Camino Frances

    My 15 year old son and I are starting in SJP this May. For us, it is both a religious pilgrimage and a priceless father-son adventure. Because we have a full 38 days available, I'm looking at side trips as well (e.g. Santo Domino de Silos). I'd like to maximize our opportunities to stay at the...
