  • Monday I was with my family. To be Monday, it was closed, but the reason for writing this opinion is because only two weeks ago, there is the option to visit the cloister only £ 1 per person, with a visit in the morning and another in the afternoon. The afternoon is 16-16:30 and wait at the door to see a person who will give you a little explanatory brochure for one euro. It is not a guide nor explains you the cloister, but at least not miss the trip in vain and you will see the cloister, which is really wonderful. The reason of my comment is to inform you of this option on Monday, which have launched it in pilot mode and if it works, leave it standing. I always recommend, as usual, do visit complete and certified guide, but here also have this option so don't waste the trip if you come you a Monday.

  • We paid the visit led by a great guide that helped us to understand ever which saved stones of this wonderful cloister. Their capitals, relief, shelter and botica will not disappoint to those who see to know it. At different times of the day, I recommend listening to the Gregorian chants of the monks in the Church. They will help you to dive further into the relaxed and monastic atmosphere that is breathed in all public

  • Stroll through a cloister as this, hear Vespers in Gregorian, before having what was in your textbooks from the Institute... an experience.

  • 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.
