  • We arrived at the monastery and there was only another couple waiting to take the guided tour for the same. A brother of Salle la was responsible to guide and explained everything in detail, the penalty in this monastery is that it is very austere by the order that built it, the depredations and the fire that burned part of it in the end saw the relic of the Holy thorn that known, but worth it.

  • I spent two years here in the agricultural training school, and I remember it as one of the best experiences of my life. The place is wonderful and the brothers who look after the monastery are charming and know each story and corner of the monastery.

  • A little history: sent him to build the infanta Doña Sancha of Castile in s. XII, although the triumphal arch that leads to the building of century XVI. In 1731, he survived a major fire that destroyed his library. In 1865, it was acquired by Angel Juan Alvarez, Marqués de Valderas, and subsequently became a center of agricultural education. In 1931 it was declared Bien de interés Cultural. In addition to visiting the building, it is very interesting to find out about the different tourist routes (to make on foot, by bike or by car) and know the environment of high scenic and historical value.
