  • After many kilometers of road, curves and after passing several villages finally arrive to Guadalupe. I had seen a picture of the monastery but nothing comparable with the image that Feast your eyes with this great hidden treasure. The visit costs 5 euros (price December 2016) and is guided, lasts 1 hour approximately and they do not let you take pictures along the way. At the end you can visit the cloister and make few pictures you want. The guide explains very well. We were lucky to see the choir since it is not included in the tour but sometimes include it. Completed the travel tourist can follow the visit to see to the Virgin of Guadalupe and you leave kiss the medal. Visit essential.

  • Essential place to visit. While the guide is a quick, the man answered the questions. We were a day which was not very crowded and everything was great. The place leaves without words.

  • 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.
