  • We have travelled by car between Madrid and Zaragoza hundreds of times and we had not stopped to see it. Fortunately two weeks ago we fix this bug. It is well preserved. The audio-visual principle helps to put themselves in the situation, and the fact that Cistercian monks in it according to their rule in the twenty-first century adds, for me, a special plus, because although not visiting the area they use, by logic, the rest could not be very opposed to their way of life. It is worth visiting it.

  • It is a monastery of the Cistercian order, very austère and monastic. The refectory, the living room of Conversos, the different architectural styles (Romanesque, Mudejar, etc) are pieces of great value, where the austerity of the order is reflected. The video room is worth to see it because they keep a projection highlights of the Cistercian accompanied by Gregorian chants. Nice to see and feel.

  • Sunday 5.45 pm, a July summer 40 degrees, a monk of dark skin, (data only to identify who was the protagonist Monk) access to a reception/shop that have not let us go, because I wanted that we saw some audiovisual, I could not make him understand that we so wanted to see the monastery, which the audiovisual does not interest us at that moment , his arguments, gave no time to see it complete, close at 6, please let us see the Chapel, and doesn't let us look out. Ultimately, magnificent monastery, and little entertainment, strange, as it is antagonistic with Catholic doctrine. Again will be...

  • It is interesting, and they have a very well stocked shop. Especially Christmas and Easter postcards are precious. And homemade jams.

  • Well preserved monastery which is worth visiting it. Currently still lives a community of monks which you can also buy different jams and confitures, its own orchards, even have some ecological. The entrance is not particularly cheap but you can walk freely through all the rooms and they also have an animated projection that tells your story.

  • It is not a Cistercian, but male and female monastery for more information. It has a well established visiting hours and the Church, except for a liturgical act, it cannot be visited without don't visit the full monastery, which consists of the temple and two cloisters.

  • I don't know if the monastery is open to your visit as cloistered nuns live, but what if you can visit is his sweet shop and the small church that have. It is very beautiful and tiny. Something that struck me very much is that right at the entrance of the monastery have an excavation "open" but covered with a glass human remains can be seen from hundreds of years ago. It impacts. The monastery is surrounded by gardens with plenty of life, so the walk up there is very pleasant.
