  • 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 place!
  • Nice complex with beautiful background
  • It is a lovely place. It has a remarkable 9th century crypt. The Church is Romanesque and big enough. Austere and sober. It has a recently renovated pipe organ which sounds remarkably good. And the icing on the cake is to be able to listen to the monks Gregorian singing in this unique setting. If you close your eyes there comes a time that you don't know if you are in this world. Impressive.
