  • We were eager to visit this place and it has let us down a little. The place is a last nature alive and surrounded by an indescribable beauty. The problem is that the nose monastery can be visited, only the crypt, which charge you 3; 20 euros per person and 5 of bail by leaving you some keys and visit it on your own, we thought that we could visit him full. It is worthwhile where it is otherwise nothing at all

  • Magic place. Worth visiting. For all the crypta with the pillar!
  • Great view, nice people, impressive monument. I miss it.
  • Beautiful monastery, hidden between the Sierra de Leire. Parking is ample and free. There are several tours to do, if you like walks in the open air. There are bar, restaurant and hotel.

  • We had intended to visit the monastery (that is currently still active with monks from closing) on our own, but after 15' began a guided visit and there was only a difference of €0.50 (which is waaaaay worthwhile) and became that he still liked us much more. Tickets are purchased at the store. Our guide was Raquel and did so spectacularly well. Note that what makes and transmits it likes. During the visit, will visit façade, the catacombs, the Church and courtyard. Sure that you like!

  • The guided visit to the crypt and the highly recommended Church to learn about the origin and evolution of this monastery of more than 1000 years of history. The knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic Guide. The crypt of the 11th century transported to a very ancient time. Both the shop and the bar make the best visit.
