    It has been the most disappointing visit I've ever had. The monument is a marvel, but the guided tour with the Carthusian doing it (a high adult glasses with dark brown hair and gray) has been a disgrace. A sow half time to see it all, explaining in tone bass, listless, not communicating anything, without any kind of interest and much less explanatory in the speech. On the other hand, the responses received to the bringing you two questions has been painful and very unkind. El Paular is a complex monument that requires explanation so they understand the importance of the work of Juan Guas, the peculiar Baroque Tabernacle... we haven't had time to contemplate it properly, nor to us explained properly. Not to say that at the end of the tour the Guide has not allowed us more time to visit. He claimed that he then had another visit (being that ours was at 5 pm, and still had half an hour for the following 18 h). A shame that not be a properly learn the heritage that belongs to us all.

    A gem of the 15th century. Unpredictable visit in sierra de Madrid. The guided tour of one of the Benedictine monks of the monastery is unbeatable, with good notes of humor and historical anecdotes.

    Good guided tour. Magnificent pictures of Vicente Carducho. The exhibition of artists of the saw surprised us pleasantly.

  • We visit it after a big snowfall, and the appearance was spectacular. Near the port of Cotos, it is worth to see it approach. Important: the only monastery you can visit being guided by the monks themselves, so it is advisable to visit before the web to check schedules

  • Impressive monastery with ceilings and a chapel with many details. The ride that there is to get from Rascafría walk beside the river is a luxury.
