    We went from chance, precious monastery, well preserved, still in use by the Augustinian monks. Origin of written Castilian and Basque language. An outstanding Guide. The environment, the monastery inside and out, its history and the explanations we loved. (€7 /cabeza)

    We did the night, very different from the daytime and highly recommended visit. We liked it very much. If you can do it, you'll.

    Impressive monastery, is worth visiting it but a pity that the guide only told anecdotes and jokes, which had been well inserted in a historic speech. We got more information from the websites of the monastery and Wikipedia. Nevertheless, it is worth.

  • It is a lovely monastery and its a great plan for day trips. Loved all the history and the tour guide was great.
  • A worth-visiting spot!
  • Here is where was born the Spanish and the euxkera. The place is surrounded by lush nature and green vegetation. Highly recommended and indispensable.
