  • The monastery of San Miguel de Escalada is one of those monuments hidden in the open air which has a special charm. What I like most is that it is almost always empty, so you can stroll there, and forget the world, while listening to the sounds of the countryside. It is very close from Mansilla de las Mulas and Cistierna, about 30 kms. of the city of León, in the municipality of Gradefes. The village in which it is is San Miguel de Escalada (called as the monastery), and is located quite close to the river Esla. 100% recommend it.

  • Mozarabic gem that should be in all the agendas of cultural tourists. Pity it was closed, while the information on the web page of the "Portal official of tourism of la JCyL" says that it should be open (winter: 1 March - 30 April: from Friday to Sunday: 10:00-14:30). What disaster information. You get from SS to get time to see this site and stay half. What anger!

  • Recommend a stop at this former place of worship to admire its uniqueness! Board of armasi driving or search for information about the Church otherwise there is a risk not to appreciate its quirks! This special blend of traditional Roman Catholic and Muslim, should be better advertised and promoted for future visits!

  • Notable Church (a modest Monastery) of the pre-Romanesque s X Spanish, of basilical divided into 3 naves, separated by horseshoe arches arches. Highlights: the header, the arches, side porch and Tower.

  • Incorrect time on the website. Today is Tuesday and one was closed. There is a handwritten paper glued on the door that makes that not open Tuesday. A useless scroll. Little seriousness.
