Today, the Abbey of Santo Domingo de Silosi is a Benedictine monastery in the village of Santo  Domingo and is famous worldwide for its recordings of Gregorian chant, but it is also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Spain. 
The Benedictine monastery in Santo Domingo was originally razed to the ground by the Arabs, and rebuilt by Santo Domingo, whose remains lie in a sarcophagus carved out of stone. The Benedictine monastery is located in a village of Santo Domingo de Silosi in the south of Burgos.
In the Benedictine monastery there is a cypress tree, which was planted at the end of the 19th century and is its symbol. This cypress has inspired a number of writers, including the poet Gerardo Diego, whose sonnet El Cypres de Silosí is considered a masterpiece of Spanish literature. A community of monks continues to live, pray and sing in the abbey.
