  • Road of San Millán of the Cogolla, is closed to the public. It is a magnificent example of Cistercian Monastery from the 13TH century with the entire structure of the monastic life around the cloister. It is modified by the eight hundred years of uninterrupted occupation, because during the seizure the nuns refused to leave it. Include above all the magnificent Chapter House and the temple with its enormous window which has earned the nickname of "monastery of light".
