All info I've seen says built as MONASTERIO DE EL ESCORIAL, No info regarding a vessel called MONASTERIO DE SILOS.

Where does your info come from?

There is one mistake:
"Monte Ulía" was not built as MONASTERIO DE EL ESCORIAL. She was built as MONASTERIO DE SILOS.

Collision was on 26th July, 1970 with one of the Coryton oil jetties.No. 4, I think!
