  • We did the tour with two adults and two children, and I recommend it not to lose detail. The cloister is an essential visit, and the place invites you to disconnect peace that inspires

  • A very special in every good way monastery. Art history and abundance. Wonderful gem for many centuries. The visit is short since there is no detail that not worthwhile to admire and long. By 3.5 and guided tour. To them 19 h of the day of our visit (Saturday), had the fortune of to attend to some chants Gregorian offered by them monks Benedictine in the Church of the monastery. Beautiful, a true delight.

  • 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.
