The monastery guards the largest fragment of the cross of Jesus.
Monastery and The Lebaniego Way
You will find this monastery in the municipality of Camaleño, in the beautiful region of Liébana. Santo Toribio de Liébana is one of the holy places of Christianity, along with Jerusalem, Rome, Santiago de Compostela and Caravaca de la Cruz. The monastery houses a piece of wood from the cross of Jesus of Nazareth. It is the largest surviving piece, even if you take into account the one kept in the Vatican. Every Jubilee year in Liébana, pilgrims from all over the world pass through the Holy Door, one of the requirements for achieving absolution from sins, according to the Catholic religion. In addition, this is the end of The Lebaniego Way, which has been declared UNESCO World Heritage, just like St James's Way.
