The Monastery of San Salvador of Leyre is placed at the south of the Sierra of Leyre, in Navarra, Spain. It is one of the most important historical monasteries of Spain. Documentation of the site dating from the 9th century still exists; since then it has been in various states of repair, undergoing many expansions and remodellations (the deepest one made in the 16th century, when almost the totality of the monastery was rebuilt). Important Romanesque architecture pieces have survived until the present day (such as the church, with its Porta Speciosa), as well as even more ancient parts like the notable crypt.
The monastery is located in the Way of Saint James.
