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.

  • We went for a ride on a motorcycle and decided to go to see the monastery. The truth is that they have left it very nice and well going to visit him. Although I would have liked to visit much more, since they let you just see the Church, the Chapter House, cloister, refectory and kitchen. The magnitude of the building you see from the outside but when you enter seems much more small.

  • 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.
