  • Beautiful monastery in a wonderful setting. One jewel of the many we have in Spain. We recommend guided tour and visit the town of Guadalupe. For a Catholic has an additional plus enjoy this place of worship and the image of the Virgin. The province of Cáceres in general is a marvel and all Spanish is to visit sometime, best of autumn to spring.

  • Is more construction, it's a mix between the lace and silver. As much detail chiseled in stone, part in the Alhambra, I had never seen

  • I really enjoyed to stay there. Staff is friendly and eats very well at the restaurant. Its location is the best, and during the day you can go directly to the temple

  • Spectacular place, mix of cultures and architectonic styles. Worth visiting
  • Very beautiful place. A must see. If you have the chance, try to lunch at the restaurant. Entrance, looking at the main entrance of the monastery, around the left side.
  • Amazing place. Amazing village
  • Extraordinary artistic heritage. The penalty is the Guide, could be replaced with a tape recorder. Explanations have let us down. Explains all the exhibits either a painting, a sculpture,. .. all run and from the door of the room, far away and without showing it. After the visitor has to remember everything said of each work

  • It is a beautiful place. The monastery, the guesthouse and hostel deserve more than worthwhile visiting. On the other hand, it has hurt me see in the monastery to Michel Jener and Rodolfo Sancho as kings who went to pilgrimage to the monastery, when they are actors who have interpreted them in a series. It would be appropriate to replace that picture with an image where to leave Isabel de Castilla and Fernando de Aragon, as are the rest of kings who came on pilgrimage to this beautiful place.
