  • Monastery in beautiful surroundings. Visits are guided. This very well although together with too many people; at least Sunday morning. The guide was very pleasant although we were very fast and as sales of each room is closing, and you can not back to back to see things more slowly. We were lucky to be on the day of the confraternity of San Millán. After the mass there was a procession with the relics of St. Millán and dances. Very nice. I liked that there were young people that keeps traditions.

  • Not leave you indifferent climate gathering that breathes, and your hospitality area. Elegant and sober keeps treasures of incunabula of the Castilian language. His church a treasure wrapped in a beautiful halo of mystery, superb choir and their song books. And well-deserved visit to the sacristy, beautiful in the light of the last hours of the afternoon.

  • 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.
