Monasterio de Santa María de Moreruela is a former Cistercian monastery dating from the 12th century which was built under the patronage of the Clairvaux monastery in north east France. It's mostly ruined now but parts of the Romanesque church are well-preserved. The original Romanesque cathedral in Santiago looked a lot like this before it was extensively renovated.

The monastery is a little more than 3km due west of Granja. It can be visited on foot. Getting from there back to the Camino is clearly signposted. Sometimes a local man drives pilgrims there, details will be posted in the albergue.

11.5km from the bridge to Faramontanos de Tábara, shop, cafés and a pharmacy, all on or near the Camino. Bar Nemesio, on the Camino, does good food including a pilgrim menu. The albergue here has unfortunately closed.
