Guided tour of enclosed convents

A guided tour around sites of contemplation and silence.

Santiago's abundant heritage features enclosed convents: places of prayer, austere living and peace, surrounded by a halo of mystery hidden behind tall walls and lattices. This unusual guided visit will reveal their history, heritage and the keys to their daily routine.

Includes brochure with detailed information.

Note: Due to the very essence of enclosed life, the tour only visits the convents' 'public' areas, such as convent churches or chapels, parlours, gatehouses and revolving windows.
