  • It's a very interesting monastic enclosure, both by its history (cradle of the Castilian and Basque) architecture. In addition the combination of the two monasteries (Yuso and Suso) visit facilitates things to tourists. The set of Yuso is very careful, and guided tour has been excellent, without frills or nonsense, and an excellent knowledge base. Very interesting content.

  • Visit the monastery from the outside and the main courtyard is free, the entrance to see the rest has a cost of €7, if they are planning to visit this monastery or the Suso's, without a doubt would recommend visiting the monastery of Suso.

  • Excellent getaway... inviting people, gastronomy to remember. I recommend undoubtedly visit of Yuso monastery of Suso how... lots of interesting history. It does not disappoint. I recommend climbing on the bus to Suso but down a foot. Photos can be made. And if you can have dinner in the lodge. We attended Andrea, children enjoyed.
