  • A total of detour and visit of one hour has brought around three hours detour on the route of Burgos - Zaragoza us. -Very dedicated - leadership was completely in Spanish with very low English signs en each point. Overall there were here but in relation to see too little as the detour from our point of view was worth it. The fact that here the birthplace of local book art was taking in all honor.

  • Monastery in that regard to sizes, makes the measures used were, to make a shuttle visit to other times. Note the cantonal collection, in an incredible condition thanks to the ingenuity of the monks.

  • Visit this monastery, is something that needs to be done. World Heritage site since 1997 - I remember - it is beautiful and has a wonderful history, with San Millán as the protagonist, explained to perfection by our guides, who teach up to the most ancient Codices, discovering a treasure, as well as the remains of the Holy. Wonderful.
