  • In Palencia is one of the jewels of the Cistercian order in the vacation town of Santibáñez de Ecla, monastery of/San Andrés de el Arroyo was named for, having found in the Brook, the image of the Santoy thus the tradition of the place says it. It was built in 1181 and declared historical monument in 1931.La Church has one nave with transept topped by three apses. But the glory of the monastery is, without doubt, its wonderful cloister whose columns are crowned by capitals with magnificent plant decoration and adopting thousand different ways. It is still inhabited by Cistercian nuns who made delicious cakes for sale.

  • It is the third time that we have visited it, and I always leave with the impression that it is fantastic. The beautiful cloisters, the Chapter House and Church are totally worth. The store offers candy and vegetables that nuns have annexed to the convent. Great potatoes and when there are walnuts also.

  • Romanesque monastery of great beauty, above all the columns of the cloister. Do not buy the sweet extraordinary making the nuns, would be a sin.
