  • The jewel of the Romani in Spain. Together with the monastery of Santa Maria la Real de Gradefes are 2 must-see visits if you approach this area.

  • When we arrived the locker was closed and the church open. As I read the opening hours to confirm the opening hours, the "friendly" blockbuster appeared with a bag (your purchases?) and after asking if the locker was open, I replied that of course, that it put in the "garita". I waited accompanied by a "friendly" bee cloud and two lizards, while listening from the outside to the voice messages from the blockbuster's cell box. My lady, who is panicking about the bees, took refuge inside the church, where two other tourists (probably) the absent blockbuster had not reminded them what was a ticket office. After ten minutes of waiting - in which I did not see the face of the blockbuster lady again - we left without being able to visit the Monastery. Anyway, I just hope the next time I try the blockbuster won't be so busy...

  • The lady sold us 3 euro tickets which were supposed to be for a guided tour (visit without a guide is 2 euro),but the only thing she did was open the monastery since we were the first visitors of the day (at 12:30) and given a leaflet in Spanish. She does not speak English,nor is there information about the monastery in English. There are some panels about the current renovations in English to be fair,however,it does not tell you much. Probably not worth the trip.
  • Despite saying at the Tourist Office that it was open, upon arrival it was closed.
