  • He knew the monastery of other previous visits. This time we come to show it to a few friends. I always thought that its pseudohistorico value (a good part of what you have in the visit continues to be legend...) can be interesting. We arrived at 1 pm. that should be the end of guided tours. In the door there was nobody. As the door was open, we went into the Church and made a leisurely tour, aided by the information downloaded from the Internet. Everything was open, so we went to the sacristy, the chapter room (where the cloister you can see after a few crystals), returned to the Church and on the other hand had a door which was not closed to a glazed hallway from which you accessed the cloister; We toured it slowly, closer to the well and a source in which we drank water; by a passage decorated with paintings murals agreed to the garden and to the cemetery of them monks... all this completely alone and puzzled of to see things that not us had taught in them visits previous. When we returned to the cloister we hear the hint of a campaign and saw paraded monks in india row. To see us, a monk of great age and short stature addressed us with wicked ways, by berating us for being there. Suddenly accompanied us out saying that it was a RAID. We left happy "free" visit we had seen, convinced that the aforementioned felt guilty committed inadvertently. The visit was worth, although the attitude of the monk was unpleasant.

  • The great monastery. You do visit with one of the monks who explained to you all very well. Beautiful staircase which really looks like a conch shell. Highly recommended to buy beer in the monastery shop. This very rich.

  • The visit was made a day during the week by the afternoon, in she a monk of not less than 80 years and with a mind very lucid, US explained from the crypt of them family of the Cid, until the place where were buried, passing by various stays of the monastery. Visit is very simple and attractive to the layman in history and they have many references, as legend has it that the horse of el Cid is buried in that place... the monk does not gets into religious issues but if historical, some parts which are exposed were recovered after being stolen by the Civil Guard, the monks preserved the serigraphy of the body as a sign of recognition. A 10 for the monk who assisted us in the visit, by their vast knowledge in history and the fun that made the visit.

  • The monk who made us the guided tour was bad, nor is understood you told the history and value of this building. Bad luck we had. The building itself, there's nothing remarkable in terms of artistic value, only the Romanesque cloister which cannot be visited. Disappointed us.

  • Visit when it's less unusual, at the store you can buy typical products such as wine at good prices

  • It is worth to move away a little of the capital for a visit, a beautiful place where legend has it that is buried Babieca horse of el Cid.
