  • Valle Crucis is a wonderful ruin of a cistercian abbey. If you go in the off-season, there are certain parts of the abbey that you can't get into, however it's still worth the visit. Be sure to check out the Pilar of Eliseg just north of the abbey property along the main road.
  • great place to visit if passing by, great chance to get your camera out
  • Small entrance fee. Surrounded by a campsite. Stunning location.
  • Very well preserved and kept clean! Love the gift shop!
  • Lovely abbey in beautiful surroundings and not too expensive to look around
