  • For my reason for visit Madrigal de las Altas Torres was to know the place of birth of Isabel the Catholic, for this reason it is a must-see. We were a Saturday afternoon (Febrero18), and had two visits to the 16 and 17 h. We went at 5 pm. together with very few people more. A young nun who was explaining us room by room everything that happened there and the different works that were there guided us. To be a convent from closure and be so few people visit makes the place to save the "magic" of the time.

  • It is really far away from the usual route, but this has emerged as a real highlight of our trip to Spain. The Palace is inhabited by nuns and you can visit the Palace accompanied by a nun. Tells the story of the Palace, at breakneck speed in Spanish and either one tries to follow or to friendly nods. The Palace and Isabella's rooms are original and very impressive. Photos are not permitted due to the monastic life.

  • Beautiful medieval convent. The best thing is the people. It should be at the time point at which the visit starts. If you are lucky enough for an 80-year-old nun to make it and you like the history you will enjoy double anecdotes to account of his life are very curious. The visit can last between 1 and 2 hours. Indeed, it is a convent from closure and nuns are not tourist guides... not know of restaurants or schedules or languages, or they are obliged to your desires. Over open the convent of own free will to be a private place and with what they can get in a year of entries does not give them or for the heating of a week. This is for those who believe living 30 people visiting it each week.

  • The Catholic went touring places badge of Queen Elizabeth and we were recommended to this monastery visitasemos. In its day, it was Palace of John II of Castile (Isabel's father) and historical documents are running this was the place where he was born. The entrance to the monastery costs €4, but our surprise was that, still being currently inhabited by nuns, was one of them that took us a tour of the monastery, making us of guide, giving detailed information on everything and responding to our questions. We were just two people, so the visit was to our liking. It was like having a guide for us alone. But the most impressive monastery, above all for anyone admirer of Queen Elizabeth, is that they retain the room where it is thought he was born. Not retained simply bed but the floor and furniture are authentic from that Holy Thursday of 1451. No doubt seemed a landmark site, preserved in perfect condition, with a guide phenomenal and doing an intimate tour of what was at the time Palace of Juan II. A landmark in our history that is very much worth visiting. In addition, the nuns sell sweets and memories that will help to bring you a detail of this great place.

  • Well after visatar several strategic places on the life of Isabel la Católica, we arrived at this Palace... now cloistered monastery... a nun told us quite enjoyable travel.. .We the alcove where he was born Isabel but a quarter without more... it has much art throughout the building and a priceless nuns saved... Not be very good for k... already that all that could be exposed in any Museum and sure k would help him more already k they say cannot do more. Recommended super anyway and visit if you're in the history of the Catholic Kings.
