Take your camino credential with you - not only to get one more stamp, but also to pay 50% less (1,2 euro) than persons visiting the museum without a credential an who has to pay 2,4 euro

You get to know about this place and history. It is just next to the church and due to Saturday we don't need to pay entrance free. Has locker room facility and elevator service and inside clean washrooms.
