Monasterio de San Jeronimo de Yuste, Cuacos de Yuste

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.

  • At the bridge on November 1, I have enjoyed touring Extremadura. Precious earth. It is a must-visit the monastery of Yuste. We hire the entrance with guide. IMPRESSIVE!. We loved to learn the history of the monastery, the last months of life of the Emperor Carlos V in Yuste... A journey through the different rooms accompanied by Julia, our guide. It was like time to go at that time, cost little imagine, given the detail, the affection and emotion with which Julia recounted, making us live, in that space of time, all that history that kept its walls... We will be back!. Ana. Cantabria.

  • Extra by far going here would I not, but if you're in the vicinity,-a worthwhile goal. Even wheelchairs available are for persons with handicap, you can be the attraction not only by leadership, but also "walk" - anywhere placed supervisory staff is very friendly and is always available for information available. Time to visit a good hour.

  • An awesome reminder that time is borrowed.the last resort for King Carl the 5th, preparing for his death. such a beautiful place to do it. unconventional approach too, to get out if his son's way to rule, plus his ever lasting love for his wife Isabella of Portugal.
  • This was a lovely walk down history to learn about a monastery founded by the Hieronymites in the early 1400s. The tour inspired us about Charles V of the Roman Emperor and the I of Spain, where he stayed after abdicating his throne until his passing.
  • Very colourful place! Christ church and monastart and residence of emperador Karlos 5. Nice place for understanding how to live kings in past. Very asceticism and poor furniture. Kindly recommend for kinds!
  • Very nice peace of Spanish history.
  • Historic place. Very interesting place.
