Help Save The Abbey!

€5,300 of €15,000 goal

Raised by 98 people in 48 months
We first saw this abandoned and derelict abbey whilst walking the Camino de Santiago in 2010.    

Situated directly on the Camino near Larrasoaña, our plan is to restore the buildings, form a foundation to protect the church and create a museum to display information about it's history and that of the area in which nestles.

 All donations no matter how big or small go toward buying the materials and to pay for the services needed to save this magnificent property. 

So many historical buildings on the Camino have been allowed to go to ruin - our hope is that by saving this one we'll be able to create a not for profit ‘home from home’ for fellow pilgrims travelling on the Camino de Santiago.

A very big thank you to Katy Cooper, James Kullander, William Littig, Ning Wiebmer, Paul Patenaude, Pilar Aleivar McCoy and Anne Born for contributing to the Help Save the Abbey Fund this past month. Your help is sincerely appreciated.
We are still trying to raise the funds needed to seal the roof which is leaking quite badly. If you can contribute to our fund we'd be most appreciative, If you can't contribute please share this post for us.

And if you're on the Camino and passing by The Abbey please pop in and come say hello.

As The Abbey moves into a second year of reparation we'd like to thank all the people that have supported us. Without your help we'd never have made it to where we are now.
We're still trying to raise funds to seal the roof and need your help. Winter is upon us and we are concerned for the buildings' integrity .
If you can contribute to our fund we would be most appreciative, otherwise please share this post for us.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Abbey this coming year.

This is a slightly belated update - and we apologise… but… we'd like to say a massive thank you to Walt Scherer, Antonio Argenziano, Petra Matyas, and Allison Croft for contributing toward the repair of The Abbey. Your help is greatly appreciated.
We are trying to raise funds to sort out the disintegrating porch and vestry roofs before the rains start in ernest. If you can help us, we'd be extremely appreciative.
We know that many of you have already shared this appeal but might we ask that share this post again. Thank you from Catherine and I.
