Monasterio de Iranzu, Abarzuza

4.5
The Monastery of Royal Saint Mary of Iranzu is a Roman Catholic monastery located in Abárzuza, Navarre, Spain. It was founded by Pedro de Artajona in the late 12th century, being Artajona's place of burial upon his death in 1193. The Cistercian Order had a large part in its building throughout the 12th century. It was dissolved in 1839 and confiscated by the State. It was abandoned and became ruinous until 1942, when the Provincial Government of Navarre refurbished it. One year after, a Theatine Fathers community was established there. The Cistercian-style church was built during 12th century. The cloister is partly Cistercian (12th century) and partly Gothic (13-14th centuries). Additional minor Renaissance parts were added during 17th century.

  • Located in a wonderful spot and more in autumn, with a road accompanied by trees. If I am not mistaken it is a 12th century Cistercian Monastery. What most caught my attention was the kitchen. Also the cloister which preserved in perfect condition the Lavatorium (where the monks washed are the hands before eating). The restoration of the monastery is well led. Highly recommended visit. The entry is €2.50, discount for seniors and children. It is worth paying it, to contribute to its maintenance.

  • The place is nice and quiet. It gives a great calm and landscape helps a lot. Not recommend for anything the bar of the monastery. A service very but very unfriendly.

  • I recommend the visit to all the world. Up to Abárzuza can bus and then walk 3 km more or less. Is surrounded by mountains and nearby is the path of the Canyon of the river Iranzu
