  • The guide who taught us the monastery was excellent. Above all we liked the closing with the poetry to the Cypress. 100% recommend!

  • A two-storey Romanesque, perfectly preserved, cloister with very interesting capitals, all different. Also very interesting coffered ceilings. The visit in with guide, then visit the farrmacia of the 18th century and a small museum. You can then return to the cloister and stay until closing.

  • Of Spain's emblematic cultural things, visit by national and foreign tourists should not be missing never in your list, passing once through the monastery of Silos, in the province of Burgos. I'm Cecilio Camino and I visited recently this place, being amazed of its interior architecture, its reliefs of the cloister capitals, all of which I was understanding for the detailed explanation guide that corresponded to my group, named Roberto; who with good command of what explained, gave details of the architectural meaning and catequetetico of Silos Abbey. I have enjoyed the liturgies sung in Gregorian by its monks and been able to make photos of the cloister in all its glory, the spires. Finally it is worth visiting it and learn more of history and culture.

  • 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.
