Magnificent monastery in Samos. Originally dating from the 7th century AD there are sections in 3 architectural styles; Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque as it was rebuilt and expanded over the centuries.
i did the detour to Samos and I am so glad I did-worth the extra kilometers and a beautiful walk from there to Sarria. Stayed at Casa Licerio which is run by a fabulous young woman, Ashley, who is helpful and hospitable. Tell her Emily sent you!!
Hi you all pilgrims!
My name is Roberto and Im going to be at Samos Benedictine monastery as hospitalero from next 15th so if any of you is thinking about spending there a night, do not hesitate hitting my back and saying "I know you from the forum".
All the best for you, Ultreia!!!
I have 9 days to walk and I am doing so in order to get a Compostela for a relative. Because I will be walking with a day pack and will be sending my bag ahead, I am pre-booking accomodation and can hopefully not have to sprint for a bed but enjoy the road.
As I will be missing the more scenic...
