Day 30 - Fonfria to Samos

There are many variations even on the route of the Camino Frances. We were trying to keep to the original (or what we consider the original) route. Most of the guide books now only suggest this detour as an option, but it was always an important stopping point on this Camino with its enormous and impressive monastery.

This town is well worth a visit. The route up here from the river at Tricastela is wonderful if somewhat a 'bit of a pull'. There is a tour of the Monastry which is very informative and should not be missed. During Mass here they played the famous organ (most impressive in Spain) with its 3,950 pipes. What a sound. There used to be 1,500 monks stationed here but now there are only 11 souls remaining!
