Monasterio de Fitero, Fitero

4.4
The Monastery of Fitero is a Cistercian monastery located at Fitero, Navarre, Spain, on the banks of the Alhama River.It was founded, on a different site, in 1141 as part of the Cistercian expansion into Spain from the center at Escaladieu Abbey, and moved to Fitero in 1152. Durand was its first abbot, followed by St. Raymond of Fitero, who later founded the Order of Calatrava.The floor plan of the church is similar to that in the monasteries of Clairvaux and Pontigny, a Latin cross plan with three naves, the ambulatory sanctuary with five side chapels.

  • Well worth your visit, a few years ago that it has rehablitado the cloister and adjoining areas, perhaps you notice excess such rehabilitation and there are spaces where you appreciate not antiquity which has, but it is worth. There are no monks living within its walls.

  • We visited the monastery and new zones can now be visited. A wonder that should not be left aside in the area. However the guide who led the visit was like a parrot without a soul. You can perfectly replace a disc. A shame! A good guide is that a work of art is then remember for a long time. If the guide is interesting it leaves a very pleasant feeling.

  • Stones alive of the history of Spain. Magnificent history of our past. Example of suffering and contemplation in the service of the faith.

  • The first and oldest Cistercian Monastery in Spain. Ranges from the late Romanesque to the Baroque. It is worth the visit, it is very nice.
