  • La Cartoixa requires a visit without haste, calmly and enjoying it with the 5 senses. At first, was the Palace of King Sancho, but with Martín the human, at the end of century XIV, this and other real properties were given to the Church. It can still be part of that initial regia architecture, although currently predominates own century, neoclassical art XVII. I recommend take good camera pictures for views that there is from the gardens, since they leave the Valley to bird's eye view and is gorgeous.

  • The old monastery walls, shared a few Interior to explore and, of course, the Church. In the middle of the patio, around the cloisters, it's all very Moody, atmospheric.

  • A great treasure which does not leave you indifferent. The Church, the cloister, the pharmacy, the different rooms... And to finish they have a wonderful contemporary art collection. The staff is excellent, very polite and willing to solve all kinds of doubts.
