  • Certainly worth visiting, audio guide available in several languages. Information a bit lengthy, but no problem to skip to next number if desired. Impressive example of Spanish renaissance architectur...  more »
  • While in own box office they advised against us against the audioguide tour, it was the best view. In addition, contrasts the unpleasant thing that are at the box office with the friendliness of the person who accompanied us. The building is interesting from the point of view of architectural and historical, and not so much in terms of furnishings and collections. It hurt us to pay €4.5 general input, but you were glad to have paid the €2 extra for the guided tour. A pity this monument management.

  • There is something left, by some sites. The audio guide helps you to explore the various nooks that are available, so you don't have to tour.

  • 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).
  • The only thing pretty that people have. You have to climb a slope that is horrible to get there. The entrance is expensive, not worth a visit it. You take photos of the outside and that's it. They do not let you pass if you arrive 1 hour prior to closing... something absurd.

  • I love this place, is a place quite nice and religious also recommend a lot of people visit this site which I think is wonderful for people around the world who wants to visit. Recommended 100%, the only problem are the audio guides that can get you rolling enough this monument for the rest seems a pleasant and entertaining travel paradise. That is why I think the Ucles monastery should be patrimony of the humanity by Unesco, deserves 🤗😉😊😃😄😁🙂😎
