  • It is a highly recommended walk 2 kms approximately 20-25 minutes, by a paved road and scope for walking on the banks of the river and a large number of mostly chestnut trees. It is idyllic in fall, also there are rock formations on the right side.

  • He convent-sanctuary was founded in 1561 by San Pedro of Alcantara on the Hermitage of San Andrés of the mount, a small building preceding of style Gothic Elizabethan, raised in them years 1530-1533, preserved as part of the current Church convent of late of the s. XVI. The present convent building, under the direction of the Franciscan Fray Juan de Ajofrín was built in the years 1786 - 1789. The project, which included the approval of King Carlos III, seems to have been revised by the Royal architect Francisco Sabatini. Bishop Joaquín de Eleta, confessor of the King, ran with the costs of the works, counting with the actual contribution. Today it is a place of peace and tranquillity with much history over. The monastery has an excellent museum. THE monk who received us told us the history of the monastery, also showed us all the treasures that collect in museums as also its history. We spent an unforgettable morning contemplating many marvels. Exterior surrounded by nature are fantastic.
