  • It is worth visiting it, its history tells us many things concerning the personal history of each one. This is an exceptional, preserved monument almost miracle by the number of wars in which he has participated. A little exaggerated to say that El Escorial of La Mancha, but it is worth. There are guided visits although the audioguides are very detailed. You can eat well in Uclés.

  • The truth is that it gives joy found with sites as well when you're traveling through Spain. This monastery is well worth stopping to visit the entrance are 4.5 e per person with an audio guide and explains a bit of the history of the place the vaults and ceilings of the various rooms more remarkable with its inner courtyard

  • This monastery was home to the ancient order of Santiago. It was plundered by Napoleonic troops during the French invasion, and later, was under the Diocese of Cuenca seminar. You can visit for less money with an audioguide. It is worth stopping to see it in detail, especially the outside as you look at the main entrance, on the right, going down stairs. There we can then appreciate the grandeur and beauty of the building, which currently is being restored. It is also important to the main entrance and the central courtyard

  • 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
  • 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).
  • Beautiful. A gem in the middle of la Mancha. The super friendly staff. Highly recommended to stop by the store to buy local products and chat with Emilio

  • Magnificent just see it believe to see the escorial in small with the monumental salamanca-like stone and Churrigueresque facade think a marvel in la mancha, and near the Roman ruins of Segorviga

  • Highly recommended visit for the headquarters of the order of Santiago monastery, desamortizado in 1835. Note:-the herreriano courtyard. -The Church of the monastery. -The refectory with its coffered ceiling. You can wander by the upper cloister and the bass alike. You can also access to the top of the church choir and the sacristy, plateresque, of great interest. A point against when we visited it was the large number of children running everywhere, who do not enjoy the visit. The interpretation Center improvised in the chapels of the Church is also more, in our view. The environment is impressive.
