  • Came here as part of a tour so having a guide was very useful. Now used as a hotel and wedding venue and it’s easy to see why. Really interesting history of Christianity in one of the upstairs rooms.  more »
  • Saturday, October 27, we were all weekend in Cuenca, we decided on Saturday 27 go to the Ucles monastery, we had previously consulted in the visiting official web page. SURPRISE, arriving this closed you are celebrating a wedding, which is that many months before they had reserved. And the "SIRS/as", which are responsible for information they do not indicate. This is how they treat tourism in the monastery. It is a lack of respect for others. To take advantage of them.

  • Monastery of great architectural beauty. El Escorial of la Mancha is considered by its Herrera style. Here are buried the remains of Jorge Manrique. It stands out for its beauty the sacristy and the coffered ceiling of the refectory.

  • A magnificent building, occupying a wonderful hilltop position. Sadly, the building and its gardens are in a poor state of repair, with evidence of vandalism and neglect (September, 2015). Note that I did not visit the inside of the monastery, so this review refers only to the outside aspect of the site.
  • Típota den synistátai, ímoun prin apó éna mína, kai óla ítan anápoda, to pandocheío ítan polý parameliméni, fágame moiraía kai yperthermanthénta trófima. Vasanistíria. Nicht zu empfehlen, ich war vor einem Monat und alles war auf dem Kopf, die Herberge war sehr vernachlässigt, wir aßen fatale und überhitzte Speisen. Non consigliato, ero un mese fa, e tutto era sottosopra, l'ostello era molto trascurato, abbiamo mangiato cibo fatale e surriscaldato. Not recommended, I was a month ago, and everything was upside down, the hostel was very neglected, we ate fatal and overheated food. Torture.
  • Outstanding place. The former headquarters of the Santiago military order, where one of the most famous Spanish poets wrote his best poems. Jorge manrique, the poet, is also buried on the monastery. At sunset the views are breathtaking, where you can see all the small village charm. It's a quiet place to enjoy with time. Also, the history of the place is very interesting
  • Spectacular Baroque Monastery in the heart of Cuenca. Highly recommended the visit, charming village with its walled enclosure and friendly and sympathetic people. Half day Visit to discover this charming corner of the province of Cuenca!

  • Very interesting and a rather curious and beautiful site. The Audio Guide is included in the price that was €5. In Addition we were discounted for submitting an accreditation of students and we left these entries in €3. At The end of the tour, there is a pretty cozy shop.
