Travel in Spain, Monastery of San Clodio

The clouds lifted and after walking around Ribadavia we visited the Monastery of San Clodio before returning to Tui. Some date the monastery to the 6C, others the 10C. Some say it was the Benedictine monks who established the monastery as a prosperous agriculture centre, particularly skilled in wine production; others say it was the Cistercians. Today it is a hotel and when we visited there was no-one in sight!

A short excursion into the hills convinced me I need to return.
