  • Only by the legendary Cypress Gerardo Diego, already worth a visit it. Who learned the true meaning of what is a metaphor with this poem, have the obligation of go to see it, at least 1 time. The rest, loose. The cloister is good but is not no wonder and the pharmacy, without more. The guide that we touched, quite cold, without passion.

  • Silos Abbey is a must if these by area. Its Chapel is fantastic and its cloister magnifico. Also you can take a Cd of the typical Gregorian chaste but in general this very well. The landscapes and towns in the area are also ecpetaculares with medieval features and if you cross the mountain before coming to Contreras will spend a typical landscape to the the West films and is a beautiful place Americans also as localizaron and here is filmed the good the ugly and the bad film.

  • Abbey built mainly during XI, XII and XIII centuries. Spacious patio with a famous 130 years old cypress. The second floor, where the monks live, cannot be visited. The guided tour is only in Spanish and focuses in the artistic details of the sculptures. Six times a day, the monks sing Gregorian chant in the church, where the entrance is free
  • An impressive Romanesque cloister. At certain times of the day, the monks of the monastery go to the choir of the Church to make their songs and admission is free. Don't expect oir works with the grandeur of their albums because they are sung prayers. Even so, do not miss it.

  • The masses with Gregorian chants a delight. Ideal environment. I advise to visit La Yecla, which is nearby.

  • It is worth visiting the monastery. Guided very complete. Parece me caro €3.50. They make too much money to date. They are lined with us. It could be cheaper.

  • Worth, the cloister is stunning and very educational and interesting explanations of the Guide. A highly recommended experience. Try to match the visit with the Gregorian chant of 13:45. It does not disappoint.
