Monasterio de San Jeronimo de Yuste, Cuacos de Yuste

(3.4/5 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.

  • We were alone. The visit, in January of 2017, in a day cloudy, was impressive. Alone, with the audio guide and environmental silence, impressive verraderamente. The rooms of the Emperor, the courtyards, vitas them over the Valley: all overwhelming

  • We chose the visit guided, and was a success, very interesting and full. Had the luck of being only us in the visit so could make all them questions that would like to, had a guide for us alone! The very friendly guy, a great Communicator.

  • It is a place of payment, it is worth entering for having been a retreat of the Emperor Charles. Inside you can see the bed, armchairs, weapons and other belongings of the emperor. There is a shop at the entrance to buy souvenirs of the monastery.

  • 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.
