Monasterio de San Jeronimo de Yuste, Cuacos de Yuste

(3.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A must-see if you are interested in the history of Spain and the figures of Carlos I and Felipe II. The over 65s pay €4 and from three of the afternoon is free. Perfect restoration of monastery and of the Palace (House) of the Emperor, his Chambers, interesting pictures that you explains a well structured tablet really clear and complete to very easy of manage. The gardens are very well maintained and manicured. An excellent visit of an hour.

  • Very good deal, and well preserved. The prices are high. They should lower them a bit since if you're family is spending extra.

  • This paragraph Monastery the Emperor withdrew at the end of his days. The place is very quiet. Visit the monastery (cloisters, refectory, Church, sacristy and crypt) and one of the two floors of the residence of Carlos I. did visit for free because there were no guided tours in the afternoon. The audioguide is using a tablet, which is a good idea. However it is wasted since it offers little additional information and just added some curiosity to the simple information provided in explanatory panels. Yet the visit is worthwhile although the experience can be very improved.

  • 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.
