  • We have seen the illuminated monastery and it is gorgeous. Our cicerone has told us that before the perimeter was surrounded by a high wall which still surrounds the monastery. They have now left a part with bars so that you can see. It is a marvel. While it was raining and quite cold. It was worth.

  • The monastery is located a bit far from downtown, is 20 minutes ' walk, but if you cross the Park, time flies. The ticket price is 6euro without any discount for students. The visit is guided and explained only in Spanish, without the ability to have explanations in other languages. The monastery is a place to visit because in Salamanca over the Cathedral c is very little to see.

  • Good thing about the visit is that it is guided. This monastery has a historical value that I won't find me now. The bad thing for me was that no photos inside can be made.

  • We just asked the guide if she spoke any English and after each section in Spanish she took us aside and in good English filled us in. We still talk about this amazing experience. Whether all guides would do that or we just struck lucky, it was wonderful . All those ancient clothes in almost original condition . Chilling especially with the stories of subterfuge and murder behind them. Recommend.
  • It is a must see in Burgos. A place of burial of numerous kings and the royal family members. Visiting is only with a guide and the tour takes about an hour. If you require a guide in English, it might be a good idea to contact them first and book.
  • This is a very impressive place but unless you speak Spanish you will learn little or nothing of its history. The guided tour is in Spanish only and there are no handouts in other languages for none Spanish speakers.
  • It's a beautiful monastery, unfortunately you can't take photos inside the building
  • No English explain.I feel so sad . No photos. Group visit at certain time. No place to sit when waiting for the group time.
