Here are two shots from the Monastery of St. Mary of Iranzu, which is a short (7.5km) walk off the Camino.  This was a Cistercian monastery founded in the 12th century.  Since it is so close to our walking route, and being former Cistercians (Trappists) ourselves, we plan on a short detour to visit this remarkable example of medieval Cistercian architecture.
