  • Architectural gem, is first mentioned in the 10th century. Romanesque, Church as an example of the high Gothic period. For example, you can see Gothic, which goes towards Renaissance and simultaneously Romanesque columns side by side. Dreischiffig.Tolles choir and the organ. Simple altar, otherwise was not saved with gold at the side altar, which is richly decorated with figures, scenes from the Bible and to discover always new - binoculars or telephoto lens is recommended for viewing! Decorated with figures and richly decorated sarcophagus of St. Salvador. Funny: original the legend there were two miracles, since the 13th century, to keep a lively hen and a rooster in the Church (exchanged every two weeks).

  • After visiting the monasteries of Suso and Yuso (recommended by the guide of the latter) we went to the Cistercian Abbey of reeds, the penalty is that it closed in half an hour and we could not make the visit all the slowly that we would have liked. Gothic architectural style, it has Romanesque remains at the bottom of the central apse, which for me is the best of the Abbey along with the altarpiece of the High Altar

  • Well told us very monastery rods and I don't know if it was the rush, but it seemed to us to be dispensable. It has a museum that didn't impress me and a collection of good paintings by unknown artists. The windows or a famous Chapterhouse impressed us. We paid the visit in 20 minutes.
