  • We have been visiting, and a brother of the order told us the life of San Pedro, amazing how they lived at the time.

  • They say that it is the small monastery of the world. It is located in an idyllic spot. The visit was explained by a resident monk, who explained to us the life of San Pedro de Alcántara and taught us all tiny spaces. Highlight the cell where was dozing the Holy, its cloister and the Chapel, decorated with a few precious mosaics. All a surprising size, by his austerity measures and furniture. An unforgettable visit, that is worthwhile. In addition, as I have already outlined, the place is quiet and relaxed. They do not charge per visit, but they accept donations.

  • About an hour away from Cáceres, we took a nice motorcycle ride ... great morning, great weather and amazing scenery. You will arrive to this Franciscan Monastery built in 1557 by San Pedro de Alcánta...  more »

  • I have been visiting it since the early 1990s when he was a child, and since I have returned many times. I love to take people to this peculiar place. Probably the convent with the smaller cloister in the world, of a square meter. Admission is free, but unlike of years ago that you could go to when you want to and you warned the friar, now there are visiting hours. So better watch it online before you go. Very nice friars, teach it you in the same spirit as always. I always leave an economic contribution, although they do not ask for, nor the insinuates, but earn it.

  • Unofficially the original monastery is the smallest of the world. It was founded in 1551 by Pedro de Alcántara out there with a small monastic community lived. Later the monastery was expanded to its current size and it is now inhabited by Franciscan monks and led. My wife and I have already visited many places in Spain where the silence for the environment, but rarely, if ever, the serenity felt like that here in and around the monastery is tangible. The brothers have put us in 2004 in the whole complex of Pedro shown around and the simplicity of existence will be shown and explained in the sixteenth century from the philosophy of Pedro de Alcántara. Rare beautiful and an absolute must for anyone during the silence of the Spanish siesta the convent and its surroundings in peace and quiet. Even the fierce afternoon sun than no game breaker.
