  • It is the 2nd time he visited the monastery of Leyre. 1st, I arrived late and left me some keys, payment of €3, to visit the crypt and Church on my own. The 2nd time, came with time and was told that, by bad luck, minutes earlier, had become a large bus group, and could not offer a guided tour, as had been my intention. I turned to offer the key system, which, on this occasion, I refused. The problem is that, inexplicably, doesn't seem established a prior booking system that make the visit, and not depending upon the arrival or not a large group. It is intolerable that this happens in a reference center. No way. Thus, not. I am sorry.

  • One of the places most beautiful in Navarre, where one breathes peace and tranquility, with unique views of the marsh of Yesa... We have had the good fortune to see the Gregorian chants in the convent Church and spending a wonderful tomorrow tourist watching the surroundings. Impressive the crypt of the convent, and highlight its history of the Kingdom of Navarre.

  • 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.
