Monasterio de San Jeronimo de Yuste, Cuacos de Yuste
(3.3/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • Recommended guided it; great professional. Consult is closed (Monday) and free days, since the ordinary entrance may be a bit expensive (€7 ordinaria+4€ guided tour).

  • Landmark of history, where he finished his days Carlos V, has some beautiful cloisters, a church and monastery. It cost us entry € 7 option 4 euros more be guided. Deserve the penalty that explain you what you'll see because it is not the same. There is another option which is the audioguide which are 3 euros but I believe that the guide is better.

  • 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.
