Monasterio de San Jeronimo de Yuste, Cuacos de Yuste

(380+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
A monastery that once housed reclusive royalty, the contemporary Monasterio de San Jeronimo de Yuste hosts eco-tourists on its grounds and houses the Pauline order of monks. Emperor Charles V chose this out-of-the-way location to spend the end of his days in prayer and seclusion, along with about 60 members of his personal entourage. A fire destroyed Charles’ monastery during the Peninsular War, but Francisco Franco had it restored to its original state in 1949. Tour the emperor's refurbished rooms looking out over groves of cherry trees. The Valle del Jerte, where the attraction is located, is laced with hiking trails.

  • The enclave is wonderful of course, and the monastery also (which can be visited), the price seems abusive 7 euros to let you see only a quarter of the monastery, the second floor is not open to visitors, gardens either, and some rooms of the first plant nor. In short, you see two cloisters, four rooms I live Carlos I, the Church, and the crypt. I will not see it

  • Surrounded by a unique natural environment, this monastery breathes history. Visit me a little disappointed since I could not see the Church since it was closed by a cultural activity. The rest of the convent, without more. I expected something more by the wreck of the entrance (€7 without Guide).

  • Large monastery in the Woods. Though pricey for what you see. But it is beautiful. You the Chapel, two cloisters and the stays of Carlos V. He lived here a few months and there is also deceased. The trouble for the detour.

  • We did the journey in "free" time. That involves going without a guide and following the arrows of the route to free will and given that have some other error's location, if these attentive you can't go without seeing more than half of the visited areas. Given the nature of the place and its history, it is imperative to make guided tour not to know the rwlato but to understand it.
