  • Today we visited the Palace of Juan II of Castile, present our Lady of grace monastery run by Augustinian nuns since 1527. Place full of history as of April 22, 1451 birthplace Queen Isabel la Católica. The visits have a schema established (see photo) and must call to the ringer to be attended and start it visit completely custom in our case. The cost is € 4 adult and €2 child. Lasts an hour but our visit today, with sister María Jesus, rondo the hour and a half and in many cases seems to be arriving until 2 pm. Sister María Jesus is a nun with more than 60 years in the monastery, with great knowledge of the history, but that is at times more focused on anecdotes of previous visitors who in the history of the Palace by what the visit drags on longer than expected. Highlights: Chapterhouse: cuts of King Juan II in 1438, spectacular coffered ceiling. Ambassadors room: cuts of the RRCC in 1476, the Holy brotherhood Foundation. Royal Chapel: grave of Catherine sister of Enrique IV, Isabel of Barcelos maternal grandmother of Isabel, Queen Maria of Aragon (spouse of Juan II) and María of Aragon daughter of Fernando el Católico (prior to the marriage with Isabel) and religious at this monastery. Royal Flush: access from the cloister to the Royal quarters. Rooms real: between them the room where was born the Queen Isabel with until the soils of the time. Nowadays there reside 11 religious responsible of the survival of the Palace. The visits are very scarce and that there are are mostly of visitors foreigners attracted by the history of Isabel. Place spectacular, laden with history and with custom tour; not exploited touristically. We don't know what we have in Spain! Visited the 24 of February of 2017.

  • Interesting visit to the Palace where can take places for those born and raised Isabel La Católica. The guided tour of one of the nuns who live in it was very pleasant and very explanatory. Visit essential if are in Madrigal.

  • We were with my spouse a Sunday afternoon and attended us wonderfully, we could be alone and guided visit with a sister of the monastery of the Augustinian who told us even the smallest detail of a Palace, today monastery and which houses a series of rooms that lead us to a time in the history of Spain that should not be forgotten and which is worthy of recall. Thanks to the nun who kindly attended us all the time and explanations offered us to discover this magnificent historic corner.
