  • On the way to Madrid a gem: the Cistercian Monastery of Santa Maria de Huerta del 1179 with a nice two-story cloister and refectory in Gothic style, as '' in the name of the rose. '' Background music gives a particular emotion at the site.

  • This Cistercian Monastery returned to have monks again after almost a century of secularization. The Church of Gothic plant is beautiful with a beautiful baroque altarpiece, a polychrome organ, some chapels with fine religious sculptures and one of her paintings polychrome in quite good condition. The main cloister is Herrera and plateresque (closing) the top. In addition there is a much older Gothic cloister, Chapter House and a very beautiful and spacious refectory with a beautiful pulpit which is accessed by a staircase with columns, among other agencies. Sell rich sweets, honey and jams, and the entrance is very cheap. On Sundays there is solemn mass with all the monks and meanwhile the visit is interrupted.

  • Totally recommended the visit to this monastery. Is fairly well preserved. There is no guided tour, but an excellent audiovisual, short but intensive that we loved. A marvel.
