Guided visit to Monastery of Oseira

*Private transfer from Santiago de Compostela, Sarria or Pontevedra to the monastery is included.

Its historical journey began in 1137, when a small nucleus of monks retired to solitude to live the experience of God, integrating themselves in the Cistercian order in 1141. At first, they began with very modest buildings that were enlarged as it was unfolding the economic potential of the house.

An increase in the number of monks dedicated to the monastic life of Oseira let a continuous expansion of the buildings annexed until the fire occurred in 1552 that led to its near demise.

After the fire it was rebuilt and continued with its activity until the arrival of the Napoleonic invasion. Unlike many other places of worship, the Monastery of Oseira survived this chapter of history and only the disentailment of Mendizabal in 1835 achieved its closure for nearly a century.

In the twentieth century, the Bishop of Ourense Don Florencio Cerviño González decided to reopen it and take monks to inhabit it and began another restoration period. It is not until 1966 when these works are really started. Today, the monastery is a fully functional building with a high artistic, architectural and historic content.
