  • You should visit it if go through the province of Caceres. A great building with great history. Guided tour runs through the different rooms of museums is a little heavy, a person of "peculiar" shape gives explanations and it is very helpful when you try to you personally... but at the end when they give you the option to see the Virgin Mary the monk explained you a bit of history in a very entertaining and educational , very recommended climb to see it, for my is it best of the visit. I was a little cold when not teaching us more areas of the monastery.

  • Beautiful and impressive the Ntra Sra de Guadalupe monastery. Advisable entry to the museums of the monastery. Price €5. Sacristy of the best in Spain. See the camarín de la Virgen, for believers say that you can kiss the medallion of the Virgin Mary.

  • If you go to Guadalupe, it is to visit this monastery-fortress which is amazing! And then see the Virgin of Guadalupe, patron saint of the region and Queen "of the Spains"! Mandatory guided tour. Visit moving, surprising and incredibly rich. Not to be missed.
