  • For the 3.5€ entrance fee, one gets to enter the church and crypt. The church interior is nothing special other than having a large wooden case holding the remains the Navarra’s first kings and...

  • Make sure you download the app for the phone which acts as a guidebook for the parts of the monastery that one is able to visit. Details- and key to gain access, from the shop/welcome centre...

  • The visit is made in two phases. But first, you must go to the store to buy your tickets and get the keys. You´ll have to leave a 5 euros deposit that will be returned when you give back the keys...

  • Exceptional Romanesque and Gothic church and monastery. Quite good food in their restaurant.
  • Really enjoyable space. The buildings won't take long to explore but are great, but the views are stunning, there is a small cafe and ample room to soak up the atmosphere. Recommended for a detour or short excursion from Pamplona.
  • This is a remarkable place... Charming, attentive, kind and helpful staff ... It’s a beautiful, historic place ... The accommodation is clean, comfortable, Simple and very affordable ... The restaurant is extraordinary ... I don’t understand how they can provide a delicious 3 course meal with a bottle of good wine and a bottle of sparkling water for under €25 The monks singing in the gloriously restored simple serene church was very moving I am so very glad and grateful that I stayed here
  • Awesome place
  • Very quiet place with a old chuch of 900 century. Can be a good place for picnic. Restaurant also available for a 25€ menu. Nice road as well + view on the lake
