  • 10 minutes from Burgos, it is essential to come for its beauty, environment and history. It should consult the timetable, the monks are greater and rather have with trying to keep the great building and close by to satisfy visitors wanting to visit at any time. This goes for those who comment coming and expect them to open them at the buzzer which will buy at the supermarket. It is worth walking through the forest around and leaving by car, the monastery can be seen from the heights, breathtaking view.

  • Closely linked to the legend of el Cid this legendary building not has been saved from the ups and downs of the different periods: destruction, looting, dropouts and successive reforms to regain that current gloss. It is inhabited by Trappist monks. From the 9th century come first restorations. A succession of styles from the Romanesque to the Baroque. Worth a visit and also test any of their NECTARS well coined in its bowels, something it is because it is the oldest Romanesque cellar.
