    I loved the cloister. I think that only seen on tour. I saw it on my own because when I already had completed tours, but there was free the Faculty entrance because it was the birthday of the prior as I was told and had concert with a soprano. It was a unique experience. It was wonderful to listen to the music in that environment. Then in the Church to the 21.40 hear monks singing Gregorian, and I consider it absolutely essential. It was an experience that put the beautiful tip. The schedule of celebrations with public assistance on which sing Gregorian are on their website. The first at 6 in the morning, the last to the 21.40. Do not miss it. To me at least touched me.

    Yesterday afternoon we were visiting the Benedictine monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos, in particular to its cloister. During the stay and visit us fabulously attended. The guide who took us the tour of the cloister gave us some detailed, very didactic explanations, and being able to even our daughter's barely four years kept attention throughout the visit. To the end even recited the famous sonnet of Gerardo Diego to Silos Cypress impeccably.

    Visit to the cloister + Pharmacy + Museum very corseted, don't see the cloister whole if you're following the explanation of the Guide.

  • 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
  • The site is excellent. If you haven't you should go. The staff in charge of tickets unpresentable. I've been 10 minutes and seemed that it was transparent. They have attended to anyone who came to ask what is as if an office of tourism and anyone else with Ruffs and others who give us. Bad education. I've gone without seeing the bad grapes. To make someone professional please...

  • Monastery pretty and not very busy not to be in a big city. The cloister is lovely and the guided tour quite comprehensive. As monastery continues to operate and the monks continue singing, so I recommend to spend hours of songs to listen to them live with acoustics that leaves far behind the CD recordings sound.

  • Very nice, amazing guided tour very well explained up to recite you verses. Unforgettable if you stay to see singing monks at 19 hours.

  • Spectacular guide which we attended, with their clear, efficient and interesting artistic explanations along the Romanesque cloister which you can visit. Very exciting moment in which he recited the poem to the Cypress of Gerardo Diego, tearing the applause that there were present. I also liked the old pharmacy ceramic collection! Gregorian chant performed live by the monks at 19.00 in the basilica of the monastery is very original and recommended
