  • One of the monasteries most beautiful in one of the most beautiful environments. The environment is to walk without stopping and the monastery to take it with complete calm.

  • It is a must-see for anyone who is interested in the story, cradle of the Castilian and Basque written. His greatest treasure the reliquaries of San Millán and his master and a few manuscripts that are still in their original libraries. The Church and sacristy are also impressive.

  • 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.
