  • We did tour without knowing much about the monastery in advance. The visit lasted about 45 minutes and the truth is that is us was explained everything very well. The artistic treasures that inside there were surprised. You should go for it but it is very surprising. When we bought the tickets not told us there was another entry for the "carduchos"

  • I think that only is deserves three because the monastery not is to shoot rockets. Paracer made yesterday and is seen that is a business the mass if it is worth seeing, and the explanations that the monk, who guides, makes the visit interesting

  • The site is beautiful. The entrance are €4 and not see nothing more than a cloister. It is shameful that they charge so much to see something that even 5 minutes you take to go. Attention to the visitor is terrible. They do not report. There is a guided tour that has posted his schedule on the website, in which the Church is accessed and the chapels, as well as the cloister, if you arrive outside the guided visit is not allowed see absolutely nothing interesting from the artistic point of view - tourist - cultural.

  • Start or end the day after the cascade of purgatory or Rascafría route, it is worth visiting the monastery. You can do a more extensive visit with guided tour of payment, except on Thursday that there is no and on Friday that the visit is free, also you can buy homemade products of clerics.

  • This place is wonderful, near racafria, you can visit inside and ask that they not teach it and we speak of its history to the monks, they tend to have visiting hours and visitors are not required to give money, but if you want to give will not tell you that not. Sell apples, jams, since it has an orchard within the monastery, which maintains and care.

  • It is an old and small montasterio, the cloister is more or less simple but win opulence in the Chapterhouse and the Church, especially in the latter, which presides over the room a huge rococo altarpiece in Alabaster, Jet and gold. She is considered one of its jewels and mostly tend it to keep hidden the visits. In fact, they are quite clear both the clothing of visitors, their sex and areas that can be visited. The enclave is spectacular, with what is good to go with time to shop around for the surroundings. #PartyOnLG
