School of illustrious bishops

This monastery was built in the 6th century, and is currently a spiritual centre.

The monastery of Samos has suffered various episodes of fire and pillage throughout its history. This spiritual centre has produced seven bishops, including particularly the enlightened figure of Benito Jerónimo Feijoo. In the early 19th century it was constituted as the seat of the Benedictine order. The façade of the church dates from the 18th century and is unfinished. Highlights of the monastery of Samos include the Feijoo cloister in the classicist style, and a statue of this illustrious man. The interior of the monastery contains the door of an old Romanesque church which was demolished in the 17th century.
